Memphis, city beautiful?

Today The Wife and I were doing some shopping out east. Heading home, we by-passed the expressway and used the streets to get home. We connected with East Parkway at Sam Cooper Boulevard and continued south to South Parkway.

Surprises:
1. On all the medians between South Memphis and East Parkway at Sam Cooper the grass is at least a foot high;
2. Those same medians are covered with an unimaginable amount of trash.

I realize too well that the city (and county) is strapped for cash. I realize too well the reasons for the shortfall. Because of it though, Memphis looks horrible. Memphis was once one of the cleanest cities in the country. Now it is filthy.
