Bright & Early: Are We There Yet? Edition

Good morning, Nashville. We’re down to our last day before the vacation and we’re ready to join the masses of Nashvillians flooding out of the city for the holiday. Lucky for us, the traffic is expected to be considerably thinner this year thanks to our tanking economy. Fewer cars on the road means fewer accidents, and fewer accidents means fewer traffic deaths–and well, that’s something to be thankful for.

  • Christmas tree saga cont. We’re continuing to follow the story of The Christmas Tree That Almost Wasn’t. It arrived in the Public Square yesterday evening and will take a few days to be decorated, but we expect it to be pretty well decked out by the time we get back.
  • Staging a coup. While Mayor Dean is positioning himself to take over the gimpy public school system, the school board has decided it’s not going down without a fight.
  • Bits & pieces. Metro Schools are trying to minimize the damage of next year’s impending layoffs … Federal wiretapping drama is tied to AT&T which is tied to the Batman Building which is in Nashville, but the bottom line is that we needed an excuse to show you this picture … A Nashville judge takes Nashville’s homeless problem into his own hands.
