Fly on the Wall 1370 

The new state logo and a #Kelfie

Best Outrage Ever
A strange thing happened last week. Tennessee's artsy-fartsy set and its tax-hating tea party set wound up, more or less, on the same side of an issue. You see, Tennessee has spent $46,000 for a new state logo. Now, when it comes to brand development, that's really not much money to spend on a good logo. Then again, there's nothing good about this.

The outrage was instant, and many fine things came about in the ensuing fracas. The Tennessee logo has its own parody Twitter account @TnLogo, of course.

But the very best thing to result from the logo outrage has to be Senator Brian Kelsey's mirror selfie, which he took in support of a movement to preserve the state's current logo. #Kelfie.
