Fly on the Wall 1512 

Dammit, Gannett
Has the time come for your Pesky Fly to just give up and rename this whole column "Dammit, Gannett"?

This week's atrocities at USA Today's Memphis Commercial Appeal include running the same obituary for two different men.

It's possible, of course, that Jerry Lynn Gunn of Oakland, TN, lived a strange parallel life with Tom Manning of Cherokee Village, AR.

It's conceivable that both were Navy men born on October 8, 1942, in San Francisco and that they shared the name Jerry Lynn Gunn. But that almost never happens.

And then there's this masterfully crafted "First thoughts on Memphis 2018 football schedule" tweet, which reads, "This year's schedule is much more friendlier getting people to show up and avoiding the Tigers have to do a quick turnaround like last year."

And really, who can argue?
