Fly on the Wall 1323 

Immigrants, Stacey Campfield, Sammy Hagar, and talking cheese

W(TF)REG

A story on WREG's website headlined "Increased health problems with illegal immigrants" is summarized with the following text: "The head of Homeland Security will head to the border to see the U.S. response to the influx of illegals. Meanwhile, some doctors are concerned about the increased health problems immigrants may be bringing into the country." The video consists of one doctor, an infectious disease expert with Baptist Hospital, explaining that there is no immigration-related health threat increase and that the threat comes from poorly informed Americans not getting their kids vaccinated.

Campfield Revue

The Stacey Campfield musical Casey Stampfield: The Musical, a lampoon of Tennessee's most talked about politician, opened in Nashville last week, and The Tennessean loved it. Sort of. The takeaway quote: "There's an unmistakable cringe factor as Stampfield reminds us why Tennessee so often ends up being used as a punchline on late-night television."

Seeing Red

Sammy Hagar, the Red Rocker who can't drive 55, is opening a sports bar at Southland Park. Will neighborhood speed limits force the Van Halen frontman to be airlifted to and from his own club?

Cheesy

Either I'm going crazy or the cheese at Ms. Cordelia's grocery store on Mud Island is trying to communicate with me. I think that's its way of saying, "I'm with stupid."
