At the rate they are going, all they will need is a duplex.

Re: “Puck, Yes?

For the most part, my friends in Nashville support the Grizzlies, especially at playoff time, no matter what they may think of our town. (most of them love Memphis, by the way, so they may be outliers).

So, even though the Preds eliminated my beloved Chicago Blackhawks in the first round this year (by out Blackhawking the Hawks and making them look old). I sucked it up and rooted for them all the way through the Cup. No matter what you may think of Nashville (and you would probably be right), there is nothing wrong with returning the favor. If we had been in the NBA Finals, I suspect most Nashvillians would be waving Growl towels at every opportunity.

Re: “Even in his off-duty time, Jim Strickland had to face the weather.

We were glad you could be there, Jackson! It was on Sunday, though. :) And, in an update, we are still down, but MLGW says a crew is working on it!

Re: “Railgarten Clarifies Use of Shipping Containers, Parking Issues

Well, I suppose this is still better than trying to put the food-truck restaurant on the tiny corner down the street, where almost no parking could be had. I would guess they decided it was better to ask for forgiveness than permission. We will see how much this costs them, since they were still operating over the weekend in the buildings Code Enforcement approved.

Re: “District 95 Showdown

You know what? If all these folks actually vote for Jim Tomasik, then Julie Byrd Ashworth has a good chance to win this race. Keep it coming, folks!

Re: “Undocumented Tennessee Students Denied In-State Tuition

Those are the words of someone who must get their news from Newsmax or worse. To be honest, they probably pay more in sales taxes than you do with lesser benefit. And, I suspect they probably work harder as well.
