    I guess the liberal admin thinks Marxism is a great way of life.

    That's because they changed their name to eliminate state. Not challenged. No problem

    I go there for work every few months, but don't venture out too much around the city when I go. The downtown area in particular is much improved in the last 5 years or so, but I know other areas can be more sketchy

    That said, Memphis is home to more fortune 500 companies than the whole state of Louisiana.

    Is that why FedEx picked Memphis to launch, or did FedEx launch there simply because of the "Hub City" aspect aka airport?

    I read somewhere Fred Smith chose Memphis because an airplane could reach every corner of the US overnight from that airport.

    Probably why so many fortune 500s land there too.

    FedEx launched in Memphis because Fred Smith is a Memphis guy.

    I believe a memphis professor told Smith his idea of fedex in a term paper was a stupid idea. Would never make it in real life.
