Happy Hour: _________ Started The Fire

  • Did you know that if the four most dangerous chemical treatment plants in Nashville exploded, it could affect more than a million people? Or at least that’s what Greenpeace says. [WSMV]
  • In that same vein, a Duke University study showed that the folks in Kingston have probably been inhaling all sorts of dangerous particles released in the TVA ash spill that contain high concentrations of trace metals and radioactivity. [Tennessean]
  • The Cool Springs Surgery Center was evacuated this afternoon because of a fire scare caused by a bag of popcorn. We imagine it going down something like this. [WKRN]
  • We can’t think of many more terrifying things than putting your infant or toddler through the Swine Flu vaccine trial at Vandy, but if you’re into that, they’re still looking for 30 more children from 6 to 35 months old and 20 more kids between 3 and 9 years. [WKRN]
  • If you frequent the Vandy football games around here (or any other SEC teams, for that matter) don’t bother Twittering or Facebooking from the stadium because the SEC has placed a ban on social media. However, it only applies to photos and videos, so updating your status is still kosher. For now. [Nashville Is Talking]
  • Metro police caught up with a car that was hauling around 102 pounds of pot. [City Paper]
