Bright & Early: You Know That It’s Toxic Edition

Good morning, Nashville. We hope all of you had a wonderful holiday! We’ll be thinking of you fondly as you begin your treks to work this fine Monday morning. As for us, we’re still cruising down the interstate somewhere between Virginia and Tennessee on our way back to the city we love. Enough of that, though–How about that TVA ash spill? The news out of Kingston seems to have only gotten more and more outrageous over the past few days, and we especially love the timing of this story about all the hefty bonuses that TVA execs managed to carve out for themselves this year. Meanwhile, they keep insisting that the town’s water supply is totally fine despite rising levels of thallium and lead and also a few hundred dead fish. Predictably, environmental groups aren’t buying it.
