YOUR TURN: She says he's an embarrassment

As it turns out, it was the fist bump seen around the world. And depending on the way you see the world, Memphis Mayor Myron Lowery's greeting to the Dalai Lama was either delightful or dreadful. It's the topic of this week's "Your Turn" segment and we chose a letter from K. Taylor.

Taylor thinks Lowery's greeting for the international religious leader was dreadful.  In K. Taylor's words:

The "fist bump" and "Hello Dalai (Dolly)" comment made by Myron Lowery to the honorable Dalai Lama is a complete embarrassment to the people and city of Memphis. For a Memphis "leader" to do something like that to one of the most important people in our world's history is unfathomable. I realize it was joke or as CNN is calling it "a bad joke," but it was tasteless, unnecessary and shameful. Of course the Dalai Lama did not mind it because he is too gentle of a spirit to involve himself in the criticism of someone like Lowery.

That's K. Taylor's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
