Fly on the Wall 1508 

Dammit, Gannett

Dear Mom and Dad,

I'm sorry I didn't check in safe on Facebook after the earthquake in Memphis and West Tennessee. But jeepers, I didn't even know there was an earthquake in Memphis and West Tennessee until I saw it on the news. Still, I can understand how you might be concerned after seeing pictures of collapsed buildings like this one published online by the USA Today-owned version of The Commercial Appeal. It looks catastrophic, I know.

But that picture's a random video still somebody found on the web and not a current picture from Memphis or West Tennessee.

Or maybe you saw this picture. It's super-scary, right?

Anyway, Mom and Dad, it's possible that this quake (which I didn't feel) caused some damage somewhere. But, near as I can tell, no multi-story buildings from New Zealand collapsed in Memphis last week.

Love

Your Pesky Fly

Dammit, Gannett, Too

Some fun redundancy in a recent health column in The Commercial Appeal: "Flu is now widespread in every state but Hawaii — and Tennessee is no exception." And neither is Arkansas. Or Connecticut. Or any other state not named Hawaii. Not even Florida.
