Letter to Editor, Commercial Appeal

Bring kids back into the equation

Since the Mid-South Fair is not returning and Libertyland is gone, what will our children have to look forward to for entertainment? When I was younger, I looked forward to being able to go to the fair in September. A Bass Pro Shop? Please. Then the Delta Fair is so far out that many inner- city kids can't get there (personally, I feel that was the intent).

This is the saddest city I've ever seen. Can anyone think about our children for once instead of grown people battling back and forth over foolishness? And we wonder why the kids get in so much trouble. If they aren't kept busy, they will stray.

Sad, indeed.
