suburban stuck update

Today, the NYT has reaction to Paul Krugman's "Stranded In Suburbia" column (referenced here on the 19th).

Like usual, some people agree; some don't. Just thought I'd point out that one of the letters to the editor is from former Memphian and CEOs for Cities pres Carol Coletta.

Oh, no. Please, Mary. I am not and will never be a former Memphian. I love my city, I love my old loft on Union, I love Tiger basketball, and I love the friendliest people on earth (among many other things -- the list is far too long). Although I am writing this from Chicago tonight, I will be back in Memphis soon, like always.

More to the point, Krugman is right and I hope to heck somebody in Memphis will get it and agree.
