Happy Hour: We’re Beaming With Pride

  • We are Very Proud to announce that the Guinness World Record for “Fastest Duct Taping Person to a Wall” is now held by the lovely folks at Highland Park Baptist Church in Jackson, Tennessee. Our state is really going places in life. [Tennessean]
  • All members of the Tennessee State Capitol security detail underwent diversity training today because of a racist, white-pride email accidentally sent out by a State Trooper to nearly 800 state employees. [WSMV]
  • The Musicians Hall of Fame is scheduled to be leveled on March 1, and owners are hoping it can even stay in Nashville. They claim that the city is only putting up about half the money they would need to purchase a comparable replacement venue. [WSMV]
  • Mayor Dean announced today that the city is aiming to cut homelessness in half over the next ten years by combining public and private sector efforts. [WPLN]
