Only in Memphis

Last month I began subscribing to the Memphis Commercial Appeal online for $4.99/month. I consider it a bargain. Doing so allows me to keep up with state news, Memphis sports, and it is light years better than Nashville’s paper of ill repute. Anyway, I sometimes, well, oftentimes run across a headline that reminds me of Memphis’ dark underbelly, mainly the stories about crime and urban blight, but this one is almost funny:

Bowen eventually acknowledged being the driver and led officers to the trailer in a nearby storage facility. About a third of the shipment was missing. Bowen said he stopped at the service station in Memphis three days earlier and “inadvertently” traded the rig and lunch meat to two men who offered him crack.
