YOUR TURN: Thomas Evans says media is hard on Herenton

Now it's "Your Turn" and this edition of "Your Turn" goes to Thomas Evans.

Evans thinks the local media is being unfair to Memphis Mayor Dr. Willie Herenton.  He says the media "went crazy on" the mayor when he suggested a tax increase last year to hire more police officers. Evans says that when Shelby County Mayor A.C. Wharton proposed spending more than a million dollars for improved ambulance service, no one in the media attacked him.

Evans wrote, "There seems to be this hate situation for Mayor Herenton no matter what ideas he comes up with.  What I don't see is anyone coming up with a better idea."
