We wrote yesterday about The Commercial Appeal using some of Memphis’ most precious real estate – its front page – for its weekly “single mother counter.”

We also suggested some other facts, trends and information that we thought merited front page attention. Some of ours include:

• The number of new jobs that don’t pay a living wage.

• The number of students in Memphis City Schools who drop out or who get a degree but still aren’t proficient on state tests.

• The number of college-educated 25-34 year-olds who are moving out of Memphis compared to the number moving in.

• The increase in the average salary of Memphis workers.

• The gap between the average income of an African-American and a white Memphian.

So, here’s the question of the week:

If you were the editor of The Commercial Appeal, what statistic would you be running on the front page instead of the number of single mothers?
