Fly on the Wall 1491 


The Nashville Post reports that former Tennessee legislator Stacey Campfield, is looking to get back into the political arena.

In one of his more reprehensible moments as state Senator, Campfield made fun of "assault pressure cookers" and Democrats who'd surely ban them following terrorist attacks on the Boston Marathon.

Your Pesky Fly likes to look at other publications from the Mid-South.

Take Click, which is both a North Mississippi-based magazine of Southern culture — and the sound guns make before they go "bang."

Articles on a "survival instructor," and a national not-for-profit organization for sharpshooters are rich in detail, while a column claiming to trace "the mysterious movements of cougars in the Mid-South" fails to mention Spindini and a number of other Midtown/downtown bars.

Wild II

Last week, a Stanley crane made its escape from the Memphis Zoo onto North Parkway. Unlike Zimm, the monkey who previously eluded capture for days, Stanley was apprehended in a matter of minutes.

"Zoo staff were seen running up and down the busy Midtown street with nets," WREG hilariously reports.
