- After finally locating a Christmas tree for the city (though it would have been kinda cool to have the National Guard to airlift one from Mt. Juliet), NES chopped it down today despite protests from the environmentalists. The tree was 60 years old. [Tennessean]

- The rash of crime in normally-quiet Green Hills continues to astound, this time with a robbery-kidnapping of a homeowner and two teenagers.
