Is this any way to run an urban sporting goods superstore?

Weeds at the PyramidThe original title of this post was “Is this any way to run an urban bait shop?,” but I am trying to get my negative attitude under control.  I was driving by the Pyramid the other day and caught the glitter of a tear in the eye of Ramses the Great.  The pyramid site is suffering from lack of maintenance.  Weeds on Ramses’ throne! Shocking!

Isn’t Bass Pro Shops paying some rent on the Pyramid, and couldn’t some of that rent go to grounds maintenance, and maybe even a little Roundup?

Here’s another shot of some different weeds providing base framing for the pyramid.

And you may remember that Sidney Schlenker or someone collected money for the bricks set into the wide sidewalk out front of the Pyramid. Maybe you would want to locate your brick, if you bought one, and clean the weeds out the cracks.

I also found what appeared to be the Pyramid’s official Mailbox

The Memphis Pyramid framed with high weeds. Weeds dominate the grassy areas around the Pyramid and even grow in the sidewalk cracks out front. What does this scene tell visitors about our city?
