Stuck Outside of Cairo With Those Memphis Blues Again

I was just reading singer-songwriter Megan Reilly's guide to her hometown Memphis, Tenn. in the July 2003 issue of CMJ New Music Monthly. Describing the Pyramid Arena, she writes: "Why our mayor had this bright idea I'll never know." Could it be, Megan, that Memphis, Tennessee is named after Memphis, Egypt, the site of many a great pyramid? Check out this picture from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
