Fly on the Wall 1362 

The King of England, Graceland Too, and thieving Santa

Verbatim

State Representative Micha Van Huss (R-Jonesborough) doesn't want people giving President Barack Obama or the nonexistent King of England too much credit. Van Huss recently explained why he wants to amend the Tennessee constitution crediting "Almighty God, our Creator and Savior" as the source of our civil liberties. "As a nation, we are drifting from the morals of our Founding Fathers," Huss was quoted as saying. "I think it's important to reaffirm that our liberties do not come from the King of England. It does not come from Barack Obama. They come from God."

Take Too

Were you sad that you didn't get a chance to bid on that set of dust-crusted Elvis-themed Christmas lights at the Graceland Too auction last May, when the contents of the whole weird roadside attraction were purchased by an online bidder? Well, you've just been given a second chance. Problems with the winning online bid have resulted in Graceland Too announcing a second estate auction. "I deal with a lot of estates, and this is not the worst thing that has ever happened," Graceland Too's attorney Philip Knecht was quoted as saying.

Bad Santa

Ladarius Robinson's underworld friends should start calling him the Grinch. Robinson was caught on camera attempting to steal more than $1,000 of designer jeans from Icon on South Highland. Robinson was wearing a Santa hat.
