This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Elizabeth Gallup. Gallup was one of several people who wrote in to complain about the deal for Bass Pro Shops to put a store and other facilities in The Pyramid.

In her words:

"I can't believe that once again we are going to pay a business to locate in Memphis. How many Shelby Countians are aware that Bass Pro is also stringing along the City of Buffalo, New York?  The same song and dance is going on there. We are going to sit around another year while Bass Pro pays a pittance of rent to tie up a valuable piece of property.  In the meantime, we taxpayers have to cough up how many millions to get them to come here?  If they get it, good for them but shame on our city and county leaders. Double shame on those of us who continue to vote into office such poor managers of our money."

That's Elizabeth Gallup's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email or call 800-465-1210.
