Happy Hour: What’s The Opposite Of Feel Good Friday?

  • We were still trying to ignore swine flu headlines but it’s not working. So we have paired this post with a picture of some cute meerkats at the Nashville Zoo to cheer ourselves up. [Flickr]
  • The nasty swine flu may have spread to a second kid at Harding Academy. [WTVF]
  • Meanwhile, the Montgomery Bell kid with swine flu’s mom wants us to know that we’re not all going to die (maybe just some of us). [Tennessean]
  • And while we’re at it, St. Vincent de Paul School is closing for a week because lots of kids are feeling flu-y. [WKRN]
  • But if you hurry, through the rain, you can catch the Epic Swine Flu Forum at the Adventure Science Center tonight at 6:30pm. [WTVF]
  • Speaking of contagious diseases, a fifth person has tested positive for HIV after being exposed to some contaminated medical equipment at a VA hospital that may or may not be based here in Tennessee. [WTVF]
  • The Metro budget has been released and a lot of folks are getting laid off, but our taxes won’t be going up. And hey, everyone at Metro who still has a job still gets to ride the bus for free. [WKRN]
  • And some economy experts have referred to our state’s financial quandary as “grim.” [WSMV]
  • Adding insult to injury today, it’s raining. Relay For Life is still on, but it’s moving inside. [Tennessean]
