Fly on the Wall 1433 

A fond farewell to Curry Todd

Goodbye, Mr. Todd

Fly on the Wall is in mourning. Last week, we said goodbye to WMC reporter Jason Miles, who'll soon be chest-bumping cops and crawling under things in Houston. This week, we're losing one of Tennessee's most reliably clownish legislators, State Rep. Curry Todd. The man from District 95 (depending on who you ask) was one of those gifts who kept on giving right up to the very end when he was apprehended by police and locked up for removing his opponent's yard signs.

Fly on the Wall would like to look back on some of Todd's greatest hits — like that time when he went all Time Lord and created legislation to eliminate Daylight Saving's Time. Or did he want to make it permanent? It wasn't clear exactly, but one way or another, Curry Todd was determined to give Tennesseans an extra hour to get ready for work in the morning and an extra hour to unwind in the evening.

Kent Williams, an independent from Elizabethton asked if he could tweak the bill and make Tennessee more like Alaska: "Six months of daylight and six months of darkness?" Fly on the Wall suggested that Todd, who sponsored Tennessee's controversial "guns in bars bill" and had previously been arrested for driving under the influence with a loaded pistol, might be laying the groundwork for a three-hour happy hour.
