Bright & Early: Life In Slow Motion Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Our fearless leader, Mayor Dean, hopped a plane to Japan over the weekend on a pre-planned trip to explore future economic development opportunities. He’s scheduled to be over there through next Sunday and will meet with corporations like Nissan, Gibson Japan and Bridgestone in addition to checking out some of Japan’s finest public transportation options. At any rate, he assures us he checked with Japan Consulate General Hiroshi Sato (who plays a mean guitar, by the way) before he embarked on the trip and we just hope he stays far away from that nuclear plant. And don’t forget, you can donate $10 to the Red Cross disaster relief fund by texting REDCROSS to 90999.
