Good morning, Nashville. We’re busy getting ourselves ready for our little Twestival shindig tonight (which we would love love love for you all to come to, by the way, and did we mention the free Yazoo stout gelato and Twitter cake?!), so here’s your abbreviated Bright & Early:
- We’re really excited about the new free Music City Circulator buses, but apparently there’s only enough money in the budget to keep them running through July and the rest is up in the air. Moral of the story: Please use the heck out of these buses so the city decides they’re worth keeping, okay? [Tennessean]
- Today is going to be super nasty, but then again, you probably knew that already because you have a window. [Nashville WX]
- A little over 100 people showed up to the Tea Party protest yesterday at Legislative Plaza, but then the bill they were protesting, the Health Freedom Act, was delayed and they were Very Disappointed that they could not actually protest it. [WTVF]
- And speaking of legislative drama, Rep. Jason Mumpower totally just announced that he’s not seeking reelection. Which is huge. Perhaps he’s still a little butt-hurt over the whole Speaker of the House coup from last year. [Post Politics]
- A Shelbyville man was picked up for soliciting sex from a minor after he accidentally sent a sext to a police detective who then carried on the conversation as a 13-year old girl. [WSMV]
