Happy Hour: Priorities, Priorities

  • The kind folks at the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee have established a Haiti Earthquake Response Fund for the purpose of channeling local donations to reputable aid groups in need of financial resources to help with the disaster relief. [Nashville Is Talking]
  • In the midst of all this global need, we are very, very comforted by the fact that our own Governor Phil couldn’t seem to care less about the Lane Kiffin fiasco going on in East Tennessee. Which he emphasizes in this interview, over and over. [Pith In The Wind]
  • Unfortunately we can’t say the same about the rest of the earth where Lane Kiffin is mentioned here, there, and everywhere, leaving us with nothing else to post about except for this story. [Everywhere]
  • Oh, but at least someone in Knoxville is using his head. The owner of the store Hound Dogs is “encouraging upset University of Tennessee fans not to burn their Lane Kiffin T-shirts, but to let him send them to Haiti.” And if you donate your shirt, he’ll give you 20% off of a brand new one. This sounds reasonable to us. [WTVF]
