Well, he thought that Mem- Memphis was in effect symbolic of, of, of the country as a whole. Where the powers to be really had not come to deal with the, ah, the issues that affected the ordinary people. Ah, and that the, ah, struggle of working people to earn a decent living, ah, was what the whole problem in America was about.
