Happy Hour: A Little Bit Of Sunshine

  • For all the information junkies out there (and really, anyone who cares where their tax dollars are going) the State of Tennessee just launched Tennessee Open Government, which looks like a pretty great way to find out all sorts of fun stuff like salaries, travel expenses and public meeting schedules for government employees.

  • The kid that Albert “Speedy” Haynesworth nearly crippled during a joyride down I-65 last year is now suing the former Titan for $7.5 million, saying that Haynesworth pretty much ruined his life. [ Tennessean]
  • Since swine flu was so three days ago, we’ve moved back to the avian flu which seems to have made a couple of appearances on poultry farms in Tennessee this week. [WZTV]
  • A couple of Nashvillians are up for recognition at the MTV Movie Awards, and you can probably guess who it is: Miley and Paramore. Predictable, but we’re still proud. You can go cast your votes here. [Tennessean]
  • Side note: Shelbyville might soon float away. [WSMV]
