Every Rose ... Thorne Peters — entrepreneur, self-proclaimed prophet, author of Puffin' Tuff: My War for Weed, and president of the Yours In Elvis Forever fan club — is a free man after spending 19 months in the pokie awaiting trial on felony drug trafficking charges. Peters, who posts pictures online of his mulleted self surrounded by naked ladies, was released on his own recognizance last week because state prosecutors could not carry their burden of proof.

The man who once ran "4/20 friendly" Millington nightclub Imbibrios protested his release, scolding the judge for forcing him into the snow in nothing but a tank top and pajama bottoms.

The changeover begins on February 21st.

Gooder News The Commercial Appeal recently announced "improvements" to its Sunday edition, including the addition of the comic strip Pickles, four conservative columnists, and a column titled "Civil War Memories." This gives 30 percent of the city's population something new to laugh, cheer, and wax nostalgic about.
