No, CA, it’s not "done." Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest was my great-great-great-grandfather so I have a dog in this fight. My business is located in Memphis, so I’m a city taxpayer, and I’m a Memphis native.

To some, it is unfortunate that Tennessee was part of the Confederacy during the Civil War. Perhaps they would like to scoot the Mason-Dixon line a little further south. Forrest Park was there before the members of the City Council were born and it will be there long after they are gone. Maybe Councilwoman Janis Fullilove will think the next time she be-bops in front of the TV cameras and calls out those "Republicans in Nashville." Where has all the state of Tennessee money gone? It sure would be better spent somewhere else.
