Stop drinking haterade, Start smoking enthusiasm

Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton says taxpayers should be enthusiastic about paying for a new $600 million convention center.

“They want to know what we’re smoking,” he told reporters. “Tell them we’re smoking enthusiasm. We’re smoking a vision. We’re smoking a passion for a great American city that we don’t want to be stagnant. I would hope that some of these Memphians would stop drinking that Haterade and join this bandwagon of progress.”
