I've seriously given thought to local city council positions, but I like my work too much. Plus, a white conservative in Memphis doesn't stand a snowball's chance of winning a seat. Problem is that the white collar contingent of downtown (whrere I live) is either "Socially Astute" or completely apathetic. We're lumped into the same district as the sub-blue collar communities of miscreants, thugs, and welfare queens. Black Democrats are the only ones they've ever voted for....and the only ones they will EVER vote for.
