From My Own Camera: Self-explanatory (or so you'd think)

(click to enlarge)
The consolidation debate centering upon Memphis and the surrounding areas throughout Shelby County has been raging for years.  Typically racial in context, perhaps the most overlooked crux of the matter is that Memphis has nothing to offer the smaller, more efficient towns that simply do not need Memphis nearly as much as the Bluff City needs them (or at least, their tax dollars).

This picture, in some bit of irony, was taken recently in a quaint little town called Rosemark, which, I just discovered, is located on the edge of Shelby County.  For years I believed this stretch of Mudville Rd. was situated in Tipton County, which is why the sign, at first, seemed out of place.
