Cherokee People

With all the hullabaloo coming out of Arizona regarding illegal immigration, it's good to know that Tennesseans can be counted on to focus on America's number-one priority: shooting Indians. Mark Greene, a lobbyist for the Cherokee Nation, claims he was made uncomfortable at a recent meeting of the Tennessee Commission on Indian Affairs when Commissioner Jimmy Thigpen allegedly said, "If this were a war party, you'd be shot."

Knox Views blogger Tom Humphrey quoted commission chair Tammera D. Hicks saying, "It was just a history lesson. It wasn't a threat." Greene has responded to the lesson by asking for increased security at the commission's June 19th meeting in Memphis.

Smoking Something

The city of Memphis went into a collective state of shock when it was revealed that members of a team competing in the International Barbecue Cooking Contest were taking the pot. Roy Hanes Jr., James Innocenti, and Michael Happ of the Shotwell Smokers were arrested on charges of possession with intent to grill. They narrowly escaped being cited by the cliché police for having predictably douchey facial hair.
