Fly on the Wall 1428 

Curse words and nudity

Memphis as...

There are things you apologize for and things you should be proud of, even if they're a little crude at the edges. When your anchor can't stop stressing the criminality of peaceful protests by an over-incarcerated population engaging in civil disobedience, you might want to say you're sorry.

When your news camera captures an image of a protester in a "Memphis as Fuck" T-shirt walking side by side with police director Michael Rallings, ending a major civil action without incident, the appropriate response isn't "Oh, we're sorry about that." The appropriate response is, "Hell, yes it is!"

Naked City

It's July in Memphis. The mercury is rising, and clothes are peeling off like banana skins, so of course it's time for another installment of This Week in Memphis Nudity.

LaShundra Smith is charged with indecent exposure for being partially nude on a bench at Mary Malone Elizabeth Park. According to news reports, Smith told officers she was "trying to air out."

Also, poor Marilyn Corbett, whose mental illness has resulted in nude dancing on Beale and around various Midtown locations, was arrested for taking off her clothes in Popeyes in Jackson, Tennessee.
