Good morning, Nashville. We hope that all of you had a safe and long weekend and that none of you partook in activities like these. Speaking of things like that, Nashville area hospitals treated more than 50 folks for fireworks-related injuries over the weekend, many of which resulted from “people playing games, firing them at each other, firing them at the neighbors, bottle rocket wars” and people who played with them while drunk. And with a few decades of southern living under our belts, our calculations suggest that we’ve got at least two more weeks of listening to our neighbors blow things up at all hours of the day and night, so keep those earplugs handy.
- Party downtown, be there. The good news is that 100,000 people turned out for the city’s weekend of July 4th festivities. As with CMA, this was great news for downtown businesses who are still reeling from the flood.
- We don’t even know. A little further down south, folks in Columbia, TN have discovered that they have a for-real superhero living in their midst. Some anonymous college student has decided to dress up in spandex and drive around town looking for criminals to report. When questioned by the local newspaper, he stated simply, “I am just a guy trying to do what is right, in tights.” We would urge you to head to source and read the entire story.
- Bits & pieces. The Metro Council will vote on an ordinance that would ban tour buses from Love Circle. We’ll give you one guess about who that one’s targeting … It’s tough for any Nashvillian to go through July 4th without remembering Steve McNair … If we had our little way, we’d eat peaches everyday … The new GM truck coming to the Spring Hill plant is just a rumor … Despite Metro’s $250 million flood damage tally, taxpayers shouldn’t feel any of it … This week will be hot and dry … We’ve heard this story before.
