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.

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.
