Fly on the Wall 1567 

Elsewhere, TN

It's old news by now, but Fly on the Wall wouldn't be Fly on the Wall if we didn't point out that the biggest news out of Tennessee last week wasn't related to Governor/Confederate cosplayer Bill Lee's general support for the continued public veneration of Southern general/klansman Nathan Bedford Forrest.

It was the story of a disgruntled East Tennessee delivery driver who sacked some salsa and put it on the internet. Bonus points to the WMC story, "man accused of dipping testicles in customers salsa," which carries the surgically precise, yet innuendo-laden subhead, "he was mad about a small tip."

Following news of his retirement from The Commercial Appeal it's since been announced that award-winning reporter/columnist David Waters, is joining the Institute for Public Service Reporting, the University of Memphis's professional newsroom.

Waters will serve as the assistant director alongside director and fellow CA alum, Marc Perrusquia. The Institute for Public Service Reporting was created to give students practical newsroom opportunities. It collaborates with daily not-for-profit newsroom/primary refuge for former CA journalists, The Daily Memphian.


"I'm usually hearing about people getting shot, but a 2-by-4? That's treachery." — Memphian Shaun Sian, quoted by WMC on news that several people attacked another man with lumber in the parking lot of a Church's Chicken.
