Re: “Calls, Checks and Chatter: Freeman Looks to Be in Mayor's Race

"After the Bone campaign signed an agreement with Gray’s Disposal in October to place signs on all of the company’s trucks for $10,000, Freeman then agreed to triple the fee and pay for any associated legal costs to break the agreement and place Freeman campaign signs on the vehicles." Has this been reported before? If not (and if true) it's an important and revealing story. What's your source?

I think all you sock-puppets are NUTZ. And very immature.

Re: “With Huffman Hanging Up His Gloves, McQueen Next In The Ring To Defend Common Core

Let me get this straight: she's a Common Core advocate, but she's been administering schools that don't follow Common Core or even the old Tennessee state SPI's? She is supposed to "sell" standards to a state legislature when she couldn't convince her own school's parents?

I will say this: she has more experience than Kevin Huffman had when he took the job, but there's something about a private school principal "making the leap" to run a vast public school system.

Lipscomb's school of education is top-notch, even if their church schools probably aren't.

Re: “Council Approves Bridgestone Incentives, Uber/Lyft Regulations

What created urban regulatory boards was either the blatant need for one to control excesses and abuses, or significant contributions to political candidates, usually established ones.

Re: “What We're Listening To: The Tunes and LPs Currently Spinning on the Cream's Turntables and Playlists

With regards to Ida, they have a few songs that I always put in my "On the Beach moments in music" list. A list that I put on when I'm feeling the need for some Neil Young potent hash cake "honey sliders". This particular track from Ida always makes an appearance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiTFKsBAA9…

Re: “Metro Police: Officer Shot, Teenage Gunman Killed After Sunday Night Shootout

And lying about people is still okay, too. Moderate that.

"fedup is donna"

Wrong. Maybe for Xmas JohntheRevelator will get some psychiatric help and merge all those personalities/pseudonyms.

Re: “Council Approves Bridgestone Incentives, Uber/Lyft Regulations

The old method of making money in urban life (establish a business then talking/railing/lobbying government into creating a regulating board to prevent someone else from competing with you on service and technology) is slowly going away. It takes the brute forces of youthful energy and technology to get over the artificial barriers.
