Re: “Did a shift in medication help cause Daniel Cantrell to kill his father?

@Jeff-Benson1989- It doesn't sound like "Daniel" is going anywhere anytime soon (although I don't get the quotes, maybe "Daniel" was a pseudonym?)

Were the nurse and doctor fired as a result? It's been over a year since this happened. Would've liked to know what happened to them.

Re: “Did a shift in medication help cause Daniel Cantrell to kill his father?

This is infuriating and disturbing. I feel horrible for the mother who lost her husband and really her son too. I feel like the medical professionals are responsible here to because of their changing his medication amount and type. This is exactly how NOT to treat a severely mentally ill patient.

Re: “Dogfish Head Brings Its Popular Beers Back to Nashville

Caught a glimpse of some Dogfish six-packs in the window of 12th and Pine in the Gulch when I walked by at lunch.

Re: “Eclectic Latin Restaurant Americano to Replace West End Cafe

While Cha Chah may not have been "pure" -- there were plenty of American and international dishes -- there was certainly a heavy Spanish influence that took it beyond just small plates. It's hard to get more tapas-y than salt cod. Even though small plates are now everywhere, Cha Chah was both the most Spanish of what we've seen in town and a cut above a lot of places. Not sure that being more Spanish would have made it more popular.

I haven't been to Curate, but a couple of years ago visited Zambra in Asheville and thought it was the beez kneez. Again not necessarily a pure Spanish tapas place, but in the ball park.

Re: “A Reunited Sleater-Kinney Rocks Out at Marathon Music Works

consistently ferocious? HAHAHAHAHA that's really rich. "consistently ferocious post-punk- and vintage-pop-influenced golden-era indie-rock" could you put some more buzz words in there and perhaps bastardize a few more genres while you're at it?

true fans of ROCK were at The End getting destroyed by Full Of Hell and The Body.

Re: “ICYMI: The Batman v Superman IMAX Event at Opry Mills

By the time this movie comes out, next March, the entire film will probably be leaked online. Then what's the point in seeing it -- unless you want the IMAX or 3D experiences.

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: Grocery Store Strategy and Ethos

Thanks @fancycwabs. I really appreciate the suggestions. I know we're staying close to Xiao Bao Biscuit so that will definately be on the list. I trust the recomendations from here so much more than the big online review websites.

Re: “Nashville Delegation Drops Ball On In-State Tuition For Undocumented Immigrants

"unwieldy problem we have today"

I'm going to submit that we don't have an unwieldy problem. Immigrants are coming here to fill a void. It's all regulated by the free-market. You can't get any more libertarian with it than that. If the need doesn't exist, they don't come. Remember, at the height of the recession, illegal immigration receded and many people actually self-deported. As immigrants, both undocumented and documented, are overwhelmingly good for the U.S. economy, as every reputable study has shown, spending millions on border enforcement is a complete waste of tax payer money. And even if one of these anti-immigrant clowns that the Republicans are running for president wins, they will see the writing on the wall on the first day in office and do what every president up until now has done regarding "securing the border"- absolutely nothing or maybe a little window dressing. So just relax and stop spinning your wheels.

Re: “Riverfront Park Amphitheater Announces Name, Eric Church Show and More

Panic on NYE 2013 was 65$. Thrilled about the list, not so much with prices

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: Grocery Store Strategy and Ethos

@BW, we did Charleston over a weekend in November and I can recommend:
The Obstinate Daughter on Sullivan's Island
Edmund's Oast
Wildflour Pastry
Xiao Bao Biscuit

The food at Hominy Grill isn't unusual, but it's exceptionally well-done. I wasn't as impressed with Butcher & Bee as I think I was supposed to be (also, they'll be in Nashville soon enough).

Re: “Did a shift in medication help cause Daniel Cantrell to kill his father?

I'm not so sure "Daniel" should bet allowed freedom again for obvious reasons related to harming another person. However, I'm certain his doctor and especially that nurse have no business treating people as mentally sick as "Daniel." Gross negligence.

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: Grocery Store Strategy and Ethos

@mike, good point about the Osborne's Bi-Rite on Belmont. I'm sure I'll be grabbing staples there a lot once the Harris Teeter store on 21st closes for its transition into Kroger. (The closure is estimated to last six months!)

Re: “Did a shift in medication help cause Daniel Cantrell to kill his father?

Iff medicine has this great of an effect on someone as sick as this guy then his medical team failed him. Not being that well versed in mental health issues as severe as what this guy has, it's incredibly difficult to understand he could go out of his so so much so that he kills his own father. But, it seems reasonable to assume that had he been properly medicated he wouldn't have be so paranoid or perceived his dad as some devil robot or whatever. This whole thing is bizarre and sad. But, again, sounds like the doctors dropped the ball.

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: Grocery Store Strategy and Ethos

Kroger Green Hills, which I always say is the best of the big chains in Nashville. An anomaly I suppose b/c apparently all of the other Kroger locations are awful. I purchase 90% of my groceries here. The prices are right and the points earned translate often in sub $2.00 gas at the pump when I use my Kroger card #.

I purchase all of my meat and fish from either Whole Foods or Porter Road Butcher. Standard cuts and fish I usually get at WF and I buy bacon, sausages and other specialty meats at PRB. I also go to WF for my coffee (bongo beans plz). I'm never going to stop eating meat (I tried) so I might as well eat the stuff that has been raised responsibly and doesn't have a bunch of chemicals in it.

I live less than a block from Bi-Rite on Belmont so they are my go to beer-chips-tp type place. They also carry (a little bit) of local produce.

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: Grocery Store Strategy and Ethos

Since it is an open thread, I need some suggestions of places to hit while in Charleston SC the first of June. I see all the standards on Yelp, Trip Advisor and others but am looking for the local, hidden gems. Dives to 5 star. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. I'm up for anything. Any ideas?

Re: “Did a shift in medication help cause Daniel Cantrell to kill his father?

What a heartbreaking story, but beautifully told by the reporter. Wish it were an isolated case that will never likely happen again. But it's likely not.

Our streets and prisons are full of people who have gone untreated or been inadequately treated, been ignored and finally discarded. Let's all attach less stigma to mental illness, recognize its prevalence and the potential for better outcomes, and advocate strongly for needed research, treatment, and support systems. The casualty count is too high. Daniel and his family and thousands of others deserve the help that will allow them to write different stories for their lives.

Re: “Did a shift in medication help cause Daniel Cantrell to kill his father?

Is this psychiatrist going to be held liable for this man going out of his mind due to the nurse recklessly modifying his prescriptions? I heart aches for this poor family and this man who, if this story is accurate, is quite lucid when properly medicated and now paces that mental health facility. And his poor mother who won't go see her son, I can't imagine her pain. Medical professionals involved are most definitely culpable.
