Last week, Metro Council member Michael Kerstetter, who represents the Antioch area, called the Scene with a complaint. He was concerned that, since we published his name and number among our list of council members who opposed the recent measure to protect gays and lesbian city workers from discrimination, his home has been inundated with phone calls from concerned constituents. We sympathize with Kerstetter, a public official, for having to be held accountable for his legislative votes. We also don’t take lightly the threat he made to confiscate and trash copies of the Scene, which is against the law. That’s why we want to advise our readers to stop calling Kerstetter at the following numbers:
Metro Council office862-6780
We also strongly discourage readers from e-mailing him at email@example.com, or faxing him at work at 259-4594. In addition, we don’t want any of our readers mailing him angry letters at his residence at 233 Clipper Court, Nashville, 37211. Also, if you encounter the honorable Kerstetter on the streetsee the accompanying photoplease don’t confront him about his opposition to a modest initiative that might have discouraged discrimination. Leave him alone.

So Betsy, instead of whining about what the Tennessean is doing or not doing, why…
