Best Antidote to Metro Council Cavemen 

Megan Barry

Barry never really had to say much at all about her bill to ban workplace discrimination against gay and lesbian city workers. It was as though she cast a spell on the council knuckle-draggers who have prevented progress in this city so many times. And the bill passed easily, with very little fuss. "As a representative of Metro government, I think it's an embarrassment that we don't already have this law to protect employees," Barry said. "This is not cutting edge stuff. These protections have become, if anything, common and mainstream." Was that actually a sweet breath of reason coming out of Tennessee politics? JEFF WOODS
