There are four cities in Tennessee that every resident of Tennessee should be able to locate on a map: Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville, and Chattanooga. Tennessee is bordered on the south side by three states–Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia, which everyone in Tennessee should also know. Memphis, home of the DELTA BLUES, serves as the urban center for folks living in the Mississippi Delta, as well as folks in parts of Arkansas, Missouri, and Kentucky.
These are basic, basic geographical facts of our state.
I quote in full from today’s post by Campfield, because, if he has any dignity, he will soon take it down, hang his head in shame, and report to one of the elementary schools he’s so hellbent on regulating for remedial state geography.

Georgia willing to take MemphisAs I brought up jokingly in the past I sort of laughed at the thought trading part of Memphis to Georgia. It looks now like Georgia is seriously wanting to take one mile of Memphis to get some of the water rights.

America, I should not have to spell this out for you as well, but I will. Look at the map over at Knoxnews. The very map which Campfield must have looked at when he looked at that page to link to it.
See? SEE?! If it didn’t occur to him that it would be supremely stupid and weird for Georgia to want Memphis, which isn’t even anywhere near Georgia, which anyone who lives in this state and serves this state in a governing capacity should know, it says right on the map “Chattanooga.”
Campfield has broken me. He wins. I quit. I have to go lie down.
