    Yes, Memphis is deeply segregated, for the most part. Downtown & Midtown are pretty diverse...well, as diverse as it gets (read:mostly white & black with a tiny bit of Asians & Mexicans...tiny as in very tiny). As far as if the evacuees are going to make anything better, I dont think it will pan out, because the city is broke, the pyramid will be used as a soundstage for John Singletons next movie, so they cant stay there, supposedly they were going to use the coliseum, but I dont think that will pan out either.

    Memphis is like NO's sister city. Our politicians, except for a select few, are unethical thugs, who use the race card to win elections (most of the white people live outside the city limits). Poverty is rampant, as well as violent crime, drug crimes & has been said is one of the most dangerous cities in the nation.

    If the big one ever hits (we are on the biggest fault line in the nation & a 8.0+ has been predicited in the near future), I expect a scene like what we have seen in NO in the last week & half. Maybe worse.

    They do it here along the Aurora/Naperville border. Aurora is a little town of about 165,000 that is about 40% hispanic. Naperville is a little town of about 145,000 that is 95% white. The Naperville police patrol Rt.59 (which is the border) at the main roads which lead to Aurora's downtown area with reckless abandon. You can't drive down 59 without seeing at least 2 cops and after dark they have the lights going all night.

    That is very sad. NO has such a rich history and most of that is now gone. I don't see what will bring people back there.

    Memphis is a great place to visit. The musical history is just amazing and I don't know if Beale St. can be beat as far as live music is concerned.

    Neither Naperville nor Aurora qualify as Little towns, if you put there populations together they would rank in the top 75 metropolitan areas in the country.

    They are both Small Cities, and each of those cities has there own Identity, Aurora for the most part is blue collar and Diverse, and Naperville is White Collar, and mostly white below the collar.

    The "little town" comment was in jest.

    But Aurora now features some of the largest homes in DuPage county and a mayor who wants to renovate downtown and inforce code and housing violations. I don't know what is going to happen in downtown but it should be interesting.

    You are welcome to stay with me indefinitely. Just answer these questions:

    1. What is the name of Quintron's club?
    2. What bar is across the street from Quintron's club?
    3. What part of town is located in?
