1. Last Word: Patio Test, St. Jude's Edge and Bredesen Runs For the Center -

All across the city Monday afternoon into the evening, the city was tested just about a month away from spring by the calendar. And I am happy to report that the dry run for the patio season proved Memphis is vigilant and prepared.

Others among you were spotted on patios pondering what ever became of Mr. Mister and Glass Tiger.

13. Last Word: Looking In The Lookout, Women in Business and The Race for Governor -

What would bring a Memphian on his own to The Lookout – the restaurant and bar at the top of the Pyramid? The view, of course. So after the obligatory walk outside to the views south along the riverfront and west across the river, I settled in Sunday for the view from within.
