Welcome to America's Distribution Center

That's what's on the big sign over the main concourse in the Memphis, TN airport.

OK, then -- that slogan's taken. I guess Greensboro will have to keep looking for a good branding phrase. Hope the Memphians didn't pay the consultants too much for that one.

I'm at the University of Memphis, about a $20 taxi ride from the airport, and when I went for a walk at about 4 p.m. this afternoon, there was hardly a moment when I couldn't hear and see a FedEx jet in the sky.

I asked a student if the jets fly over all the time like that. "Yes, they do."

Anynow, I'm here for this, and I'll be talking about color terminology in Latin on Saturday.
