Memphis is a funny town when it comes to tolerance. Can't tell you how many racial epithets I hear daily (don't beleive me, check out the rants and raves at memphis.craigslist.org). But our fine citizens show an uncanny resolve to help our brethren who, because of a certain neural degenreative disease, have limited mobility. Case in point - I've never seen so much kindness as I do when students going into the language building stop to help a fellow (who is mobility impaired) place a cigarette in his little hooka pipe, remove his chair-directing toob from his mouth, turn off his oxygen, and light up the cigarette. I have such hope in the compassion of man. God bless phillip morris and memphis. So long and Mahalo.
