Re: “This Logo Cost $46,000

The folks at Gouge, Scam and Fleece are experienced at overcharging the state, look at what they were paid for those incredibly lame Tennessee Lottery commercials.

Re: “This Logo Cost $46,000

According to a commenter at my site the main thing wrong with our old logo is that it can't be copyrighted. Government run like a business, etc. etc. etc.

"Designed by the fine folks at GS&F right here in Nashville. That place is oozing with talent."

And I'm sure the Haslam henchman who hired them appreciated the 25% "finders fee".

Re: “This Logo Cost $46,000

Although the TN logo is purportedly for stationery and signs, this TedTalks video on flag design provides interesting insight applicable to the awful TN logo design.

Apparently Megan got that blue jacket at the Bud Adams estate sale.

Re: “#MayoralChatter: Barry Releases First Ad, Rebrovick Rides a Garbage Truck

but when she her truck gets off the highway and heads to TSU, she finds an old black woman in curlers throwing out a TV from 1970?
Cute.
But RACIST AS FUCKING HELL.

Wow, so she's the racist, but you're the one that makes a connection to TSU? Ok.

Re: “Attention WKRN — Being Trans is Not a Crime

Wow, the anonymous assholes are out in force today, aren't they?

And I agree with Perry. Paying for a hotel room in cash is not probable cause for an arrest. For all we know, she could be an adherent of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace.

Is it blurry on purpose, or is that just the picture on Pith?

Re: “#MayoralChatter Roundup: Kane's HQ, Freeman's Housing Plan, and Polls!

Jeremy Kane probably held his party around the same time that the homeless people begin to flock to the mission for the night. It's easy to round 300 people that way. Bless his heart.

Some one with a background in technology is dumping electronic devices into the garbage? Really? Even the state of Tennessee encourages better environmental practices...Linda should know better.

Re: “#MayoralChatter: Barry Releases First Ad, Rebrovick Rides a Garbage Truck

What is it with all the comments about candidates weight? Have you not progressed past a high school mentality? I used to enjoy reading Pith comments but lately, they seem to have been taken over by juvenile trolls. Although many of these comments are doubtlessly by the same person using different screen names.

Re: “#MayoralChatter: Barry Releases First Ad, Rebrovick Rides a Garbage Truck

Great point, Henry. The prospect of Freeman having multiple bought and paid for proxy attackers-Linda and especially Kane being likely for sale- is real. All the more reason Freeman is the wrong wrong choice.
