I have just read that crime is a problem in Tennessee; Memphis has been called the fourth most dangerous city in the country and has the highest rate of violent crime in the state, followed by Athens and Dickson.

My family lives in Dickson.  They do not mention violent crime, but there may well be a lot of it in parts of the city that they do not frequent.  I am going to contact my sister and see if she has some insights into this issue.

Just back from a walk up Central Park West and back down Broadway–one of my favorite walks.  As I got to Broadway, a tour bus passed by blaring Frank Sinatra’s New York, New York: “If you can make it there, you’ll make it anywhere…”

I have never subscribed to the truth of that statement, but I love Sinatra’s version of the song and was delighted to hear it and see that bus full of people enjoying New York.
