Fly on the Wall 1489 

TN Trifecta

The results are inconclusive, but as of press time, your Fly-Team has reason to believe that this social media artifact is what's known as the Tennessee Trifecta.

For those who may have trouble reading the finer print, it's Tennessee's porn-busting Senator and gubernatorial hopeful Mae Beavers re-tweeting Sean Hannity, sharing a Charlie Daniels song.

Although valueless, the Tennessee Trifectas are prized among Social Media collectors for their Zen-like perfection.

Notable

Following a backlash that happened when it was announced that the Orpheum Theatre was dropping Gone With the Wind from its summer season, CEO Brett Batterson issued an upsetting statement:

"These past five days have been the longest of my life. I hurt as a result of this experience. Our Orpheum team has personally been attacked and threatened to the point there are guards stationed to watch my home and the Orpheum facilities. This is irrational. It is four hours of programming at the Orpheum, out of the 8,760 in a year."

Quotable

When people ask why Gone With the Wind upsets some folks so much, you can clip the film's opening quotation right out of Fly on the Wall and hand it to them:

"There was a land of cavaliers and cotton fields called the Old South. Here in this pretty world, gallantry took its last bow. Here was the last ever to be seen of knights and their ladies fair, of master and of slave. Look for it only in books, for it is no more than a dream remembered, a civilization gone with the wind ..."
