MTV’s hit show My Super Sweet 16 featured a Memphis teen named Katie, the very personification of the Sweet Tea Aristocracy. Katie’s dad spent as much $500,000 for her sweet 16 birthday party while many Memphis children are not as fortunate. While Katie is disappointed by her new Hummer, impoverished children in Memphis lack adequate health care and a decent place to live. Fear not, the Center City Commission is cracking down on the real problems in the city…the homeless.
