    Memphis has a record year for murders

    According to the Commercial Appeal (Memphis paper) unless someone gets killed today/tonight, which is a distinct possibility here, Memphis will finish the year with 159 murders for 2006. That beats last year and solidly cements our place as having the second highest violent crime rate in the nation according to the F.B.I.

    Maybe next year the gang bangers and thugs can try harder and Memphis can be number one.

    God, please help me find a job in Indiana and get me and my family the heck out of here in 2007. Maybe that should be my new years resolution, work harder to find a job in the Hoosier state where I was born and raised and move us back up there.

    Happy new year everyone.

    So very right. I wouldn't mind staying in TN, but we really need to move on further out away from Memphis and in fact Shelby county.

    The Boonies sound great. We lived out in the sticks in Alabama before moving here and I surely do miss it.

    Hey, Mike, what a difference a mere 4 months and 4 days make. Back on August 27 you were telling me you didn't want to move back to Alabama and that West Tennessee wasn't so bad. Just kidding. I lived in New Orleans for 14 years and often it wasn't so bad either. I've been back in West Central Alabama for 11 and 1/2 years and friends I made in Louisiana and the food are the only things I miss. I haven't been in the Big Easy since April 2003.

    George, it still isn't too bad here but it would be a lot better if we were 20 or so miles further East of Memphis. The further out in the boonies the better.

    And, I didn't hear the whole story and I will have to confirm but, I believe we had another murder on Dec. 31 so that would put us at an even 160 murders for 2006.

    Yeeash....
