Fly on the Wall 1540 

Dammit, Gannett

A short list of don'ts for daily newspapers wishing to appear somewhat local inspired by the Gannett-owned Commercial Appeal:

1. Not to throw shade like it's sunny, but don't tweet stories about how the cancellation of a major concert tour will be a bummer for Detroit fans when Memphis is on the same tour.

2. While moonscapes are sexy as hell, stop illustrating stories about things like a Recreational Equipment Inc. opening in Memphis with pictures of a volcano-scarred vista in Idaho. Dammit.

Neverending Elvis

If you've ever wanted to be King of the trailer park — you're too late! Elvis Presley's 1960s-era mobile home recently sold at auction for $55,000. Like most trailer homes, Elvis' mobile home has a gold-coated sink and tub.
