Re: “An Agenda for Memphis

Mr. Mayor,

Your letter holds a lot of weight. Even if at this point it's just a bunch of eloquently written words to an artistic community that's become accustomed to being ignored and its supporters who have wondered for years if anyone higher up will ever notice or begin to care, your words are important. In government things move slowly on purpose and the pessimist in the back of my mind is constantly harping that I'll be 35 before I see any of the changes to Memphis that you've highlighted here (I turned 22 yesterday, by the way).

However, knowing that these words came from you - someone who still lives in the city, drives in the city and who I've seen once or twice actually shopping in the city - I feel like I can believe the promises you've made here because you appear to really care about the arts in our city. Other people say they care, give their money and debate for countless hours about how we can make things better... but then that's it. That's all they do. Your letter seems sincere. Your proposed actions seem sincere.

With that said (and with hopes that you take the time out of your busy day to actually read these comments), please don't become just another person who says they care about the arts and support the arts, but at the end of the day only name drop to make themselves look savvy. Don't let this letter become just that - a letter. A bunch of well-written words. We can get well-written words anywhere. We want to see real growth and improvement in our beloved Memphis.
