Truth Hurts

There are moments when it seems like Memphis reporters are in a contest to see who can report the most over-the-top crime in the most sensational way. This good old-fashioned error says it all.

Filed under Arts & Entertainment? Somehow that seems about right.

Marriage Crisis

In an incredibly sensitive piece of writing, Commercial Appeal reporter Richard Morgan notes: "There are rare beauties in this world: Orchids, diamonds, panda cubs. But not single women in Memphis." Morgan's article about how the excess of single women in the Mid-South increases median bridal ages seems to have had two titles. It's currently online as "Single Women too Plentiful in Memphis, Study Says," but Google has it catalogued under its original title: "Potential Brides Age Like Fine Whine."

Breaking!

Did you hear about the two scantily clad girls who posed for photos on an unattended police scooter? Of course you did! It's big, big news, and everybody covered it.

In spite of all the coverage, nobody explained why the poor girls' faces were so blurry.

Smash

According to the Memphis Business Journal, Memphis-based Frontier Beverage had inked a potentially lucrative distribution deal for a new herbal relaxation beverage called Unwind. Frontier has also developed a concentrated shot version of a drink called Bulldozer.
