Happy Hour: New Friend Request Edition

  • Got a burning question for the presidential debate? Myspace will be handling that this year. Maybe! We think! Well, the Tennessean is doing that thing where they give us a headline without a story attached, but we love them anyway. [Tennessean]
  • Just as Gustav’s evacuees are on their way out, we were bracing ourselves for the influx of folks fleeing Ike, but it looks like Tennessee won’t be taking any more hurricane victims until we’ve recovered from the last round. [WSMV]
  • For all the GOPers among us, there’s a McCain-Palin party happening in a few minutes at the Douglas Corner Cafe on 8th Ave. at 6pm. There should be plenty of good music and good folks out showing their support for the Republican ticket. [TNGOP]
  • The city is officially shutting down the homeless gathering spot known as Tent City on September 22nd, threatening the residents with prosecution if they aren’t out by the deadline. We’re thinking someone should bring this one up at the Habitat meeting tonight. [Tennessean]
