    The worst place I've ever lived in was West Memphis, Arkansas I only remember a few memories of living there I was 4 as far back as I can remember living there I never knew how bad the town actually was until I got older as my parents shielded me from stuff when I was young and its even worse now and the damn mosquitos are bad its so bad sometimes they are like a swarm in some places the only reason I only go there now is to visit my grandma and the rare occasion of visiting my sister my grandma refuses to leave because the house holds sentimental value to her and she is devoleping alzheimers and my sister won't leave until she leaves whenever I'm there I don't feel safe without a weapon.

    Want to create some jobs ? how about demolishing all those derelict buildings . That can't be good for neighborhood morale seeing a place that's akin to Berlin 1945 .
