Fly on the Wall 1519 

Dammit, Gannett

It was one thing when The Commercial Appeal misspelled the name of former editor Angus McEachran in a tribute to the recently deceased newspaperman.

Sure, it was ironic because McEachran was such a stickler for details and famous for summoning reporters to a disciplinary event called "error court." But who's left at the CA who remembers Angus?

Certainly nobody at the Iowa hub where the paper's edited knew the guy or gives a damn about Memphis stuff. And, in fairness, McEachran is an unusual name and hard to spell, unlike the name of civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., who was recently identified as "Marin" in a front page cutline.

In case you missed it during its short trip around the internet, this seemingly deleted tweet should be forever known as "The Memphis Conspiracy."

So it goes: "ServiceMaster CEO Nik Varty brings in new crew of corporate execs to lead the Memphis." The Memphis welcomes its new overlords, presumably.

"Ifedigbo and Martin, while fine-tuning the Hood Incubator's strategy in Oakland, have their eyes set on spreading the model to other cities statewide — and eventually to cities like Chicago, Detroit and Memphis." — Politico reports on the unbearable whiteness of legal pot and one company's strategy to get ahead of the trend and change things.
