Theories Evolve Standing ovation for Republican Bill Dunn for his work on a bill that allows for the teaching of alternatives to evolution. Let's all join together and break the shackles of math and history to create a better Tennessee, where developing young intellects can reflect on the War of Northern Aggression and proudly declare that 1+1 does not necessarily equal 6.

Verbatim From an email alerting Midtowners to a potential threat: "Lt. Barham of the Union Station Task Force is asking for our help in locating an orange Chevrolet Tahoe that has recently been breaking into cars and taking purses. If you see such a car in Midtown, get the license plate and contact Lt. Barham immediately." Never turn your back on a Chevy. They'll cut you.
