The new Madrid fault is just not active enough. If Memphis were to break off and float down the Mississippi, Tennessee would be a better place!

Here's an irrelevant statement:

The park is located a few miles from the old Lorraine Hotel, where civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968.

Uh, completely different part of town. No connection between the two other than they are in the same city. They could have well said "The park is located just a few miles from Poser's house, wehere many a deer have been eaten" \:\)

When I was in Dental School in Memphis I lived in a dorm adjacent to Nathan Bedford Forrest Park.....I met my wife in that dorm and on our first date we swung on the swings and hung out there. Probably not wise as it could be dangerous in that park at night....but hey, we had been drinkin' Hate to see them change the name

Here we were back in the day....1989 I believe in Nathan Bedford Park between classes....she was in Physical Therapy School while I was in Dental School...we lived in a co-ed dorm....sorry to hijack thread a little
