Re: “In the wake of the Orlando massacre, members of Tennessee's LGBT community share stories of finding safety and refusing to be silent

Thank you for prioritizing the voices of our LGBTQ communities. It's been frustrating to read think pieces and columns about the massacre by straight, cis-gender men and women. It's really important that we let queer people lead conversations about this tragedy and their on-going struggles.

Re: “Hot bands, big deals, a buzzing music scene — Nashville's ’80s rock scene had it all

Flannigans? I was there with Scott Borchetta one night and some guy got punched in the back of the head for looking at some dude's girlfriend. Never again. It sucked anyway. What about K.O. Jams? Does anyone remember that place in Murfreesboro? Closing night at K.O. Jams with Jason & the Scorchers...crazy. R.E.M. played there as well...I think?? Yes, I remember Bruce and he does look like Ronnie Wood NOT Keith Richards...but, hey, they kinda of looked like each other back then...so what's the difference? I was at lots of great shows at Cantrell's...Green On Red, the Gun Club, Stray Cats, Dream Syndicate...and Elliston Square...saw Screaming Trees open for fiReHOSE there...wow. Went to all the R.E.M. shows at Cantrell's and never saw them again after that...sad I suppose.

I'm pretty sure that was the real Donna. She says shit like that all the time.

Her daughter should automatically qualify her for a green card. Aye carumba!

Where is the liberal outrage about her carrying a firearm around children? Why, it could "just go off!" (sarcasm for the small minded liberals)

Re: “How Tootsie's Orchid Lounge helped change country music and Nashville, in just 50 years

Tom T Hall is right about the telephone company charging a deposit for songwriters, but it wasn't just songwriters who were penalized. Musicians or anyone with anything to do with the music business, who admitted it, had to pay a large deposit (I think it was $75, but I'm not sure) to the phone company, to get a phone, in the 1960s.

Agreed, the real Donna is less obvious when she expresses her racist positions.

Speak for yourself yoyo, I don't care what these fake liberals think. I'm a true liberal and I think she looks foreign I have a right to know if she's legal.

Something was bugging me about Ms Spalding's ensemble - she needs a can of pepper spray clipped to her belt to be complete.

Had the opportunity to tour the place with Pauline last year. Very impressive, and unusual, person. Great leadership qualities.

This is my aunt and she has always been involved with helping people better their lives but she always holds them accountable too! She is awesome and she isn't afraid to pull that gun out if she needs to.

That's not Donna Locke commenting; she's got better judgment than to make those remarks. Somebody is trying to make her look bad.

She looks ethnic to me. I wonder what her real name is.

"An American flag hangs next to Spalding's desk, and more patriotic memorabilia fills the office. Her belt holds a 9mm Springfield XD handgun on the right side and a Taser on the left. She's only had to unholster the gun once at the hotel, but the other weapon has been used more."

What the hell!! Where's the liberal outrage?

This woman is a total bad ass and clearly a wonderful person to boot. If only the people elected to serve the people of TN cared as much about helping the less fortunate. Hopefully some big wig in the music industry sees this and is inspired to spend a lot of money creating similar facilities.
