Good morning, Nashville. About 7,000 Vanderbilt students are the lucky recipients of a year’s worth of free identity theft protection after a professor’s computer was stolen containing their social security numbers. Apparently the incident happened in February, and the school has since instructed professors to “purge personal information like social security numbers from their files.” No kidding.
- Hog wild. Tennessee will soon begin hunting feral hogs from the sky, because these hogs eat crops and carry diseases and “breed prolifically.” They estimate they can wipe out 400 hogs in just 8 hours of helicopter hunting.
- Playing the slots. News Channel 5 busted up a St. Patrick’s Day party at County Clerk John Arriola’s office yesterday by barging into the break room and discovering that city employees were amusing themselves with slot machines. After hassling the employees, the news crew was asked to leave but continued being obnoxious, so now there is a painfully awkward news story to document the whole thing.
- Bits & pieces. We always love it when we make INTERNATIONAL NEWS for things like yesterday’s unsuccessful leprechaun bank robbery (Thanks to Drew L. for the tip) … Hey East Tennessee, could you stop falling apart already? … Lest you forget about all the water main street closures downtown … We’ve got some wet weather in store for the weekend.
