Bright & Early: Fish Out Of Water Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Here’s what’s going on around town:

  • Governor Haslam and Amazon continue to do the will-they-won’t-they dance around the whole question over whether or not Amazon will have to charge state sales tax once they open up their planned Tennessee distribution centers. [Tennessean]
  • The Titans want Chris Johnson so badly that they say they’re willing to make him the highest paid running back in all of NFL history if he will please, please stay. [Tennessean]
  • Ben Bredesen, son of Former Governor Phil, is tossing his hat in the microbrew ring with his latest brewery venture, Fat Bottom. He won’t be bottling or opening up a taproom anytime soon, but he will be producing kegs that we hope end up someplace where we can try them. [Tennessean]
  • Metro Councilman Jamie Hollin is taking another crack at recognizing the students who protested the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill a few months ago after his first attempt was famously shot down. [City Paper]
  • And this! We’re just not even sure what to say about this. [WKRN]
