Speaking of Myron

This is what I love about our mayor pro tem:

He just sent out a press release touting the almost $1 million of publicity his "friendly" fist bump with the Dalai Lama generated for Memphis.

The fist-bump was mentioned by Jay Leno and featured on CNN.

"When you include the internet, and the fact that this exchange has now gone viral, the benefit for Memphis is astronomical," he is quoted as saying in the release. "There’s not a marketing campaign anywhere that could have generated this much positive press, this quickly, for the City of Memphis.”

This is a little silly, but I do generally like how open Lowery is with the media. Just the fact that he sends out his own e-mails is quite refreshing.
