  • The press crush at Donut Den's announcement that the neon sign will return.

I learned three fascinating things last week at a professional development event that you probably didn't read in the local papers or see on the broadcast news. So you can truly say you saw it on the Nashville Scene's Bites blog first.

1) 380 children were out with H1N1 at Brentwood High School the last week of August/first week of September.

2) Middle Tennessee has the nation's fastest-growing infection rate of Hepatitis B (which is the nasty one), because we do a terrible job of regulating tattoo parlors.

3) The American Medical Association has tentatively recommended eliminating labcoats for doctors and other healthcare providers because they're a vector for infection.

That's three world-rocking pieces of public information that make a difference in your life.

Oh, and here's another: Donut Den's neon sign stays. I was on deadline and didn't go to the announcement, but judging from the number of reporters and cameras present at today's press conference, you'll hear about it soon enough. Except that you read it here first.
