  • Commuter rail Music City Star spent its Federal Funds a little faster than anticipated, and now it’s about $750,000 in the hole. And also, no one really uses it. [Tennessean]
  • Democratic superdelegate Lincoln Davis of Pall Mall, TN (East TN–enough said) launched our fair in the national spotlight today when he said he was holding off on endorsing Obama because “[h]e’s got some bad connections, and he may be terrorist connected for all I can tell. It sounds kind of like he may be.” We hoping that was some awful misquote. [City Paper]
  • A 12-year old North Nashville boy survived an accidental shooting by his cousin when they found the father’s gun in the boy’s home. The bullet just barely missed his heart, and he’s expected to make a full recovery. [WKRN]
  • Titans wide receiver Brandon Jones was caught toting a .32-calliber handgun around in his bags at the Nashville Airport this morning, allegedly left over from target practice. We’re not sure how you accidentally bring a gun to the airport in a day where most of us aren’t even bringing liquids, though. [City Paper]
