A Verbal Snippet

Yesterday, I was at a gathering of a couple of hundred people and there were a fair number of them from out of town. I met a guy who had been involved in some business a few years back in Memphis and this was the first time he had been back in a while. Please pay attention all you people who constantly bash Memphis. His comment was this, "Memphis is my favorite city. My wife was surprised when I told her that. She said you've been to Miami, New York, New Orleans and so many other places, why Memphis? And I said it's the people. You come here and you feel something you don't feel anywhere else. I just love it." By the way I heard two other people say more or less the same thing. I heart the love.
