Re: “Fairgrounds TDZ Plan Gets Rousing Council Endorsements

I am an "email friend" of Councilman Myron Lowery and just last week he shared an article from the St. Louis Post Dispatch with us called "What to see in Memphis the second time around". It's funny there was no mention in this article about sports whatsoever. It was all about current music, music history, art and the zoo. Now I read that Mr. Lowery is all about getting this TDZ money, no matter what. Well, as Dan Ball said, tourists are not going to come to Memphis for retail or sports. Retail and sports is in every town in America. Memphis is unique. People come from around the world. That does not happen everywhere. If we want tourists to come to the "TDZ" we need the Coliseum as a base. And then build to suit it, or not build at all...This money is not the be all, end all of Memphis...unless we spend it foolishly and greedily without thought for the next Midtown generations or the tourists that love this historic city.
