We don’t always trumpet staff hirings
here, but I think this one—like Jeff Woods’ triumphant return some
months back—is particularly noteworthy. Starting Jan. 2, former Scene
staff writer Matt Pulle will be returning to the paper as managing
editor. He will write and report, as all of our editors do, in addition
to working with copy and helping me with the paper’s overall vision.
Pulle is a fearless truth teller, and his homecoming is great news for
readers and bad news for wayward cops, stupid Metro Council members and
police prostitution decoys who consummate the act against district
attorney instruction. It’s probably not what Nashville’s competitive
runners want to hear either, as the scrawny Pulle will be facing them
again at starting lines near you. Also, Scene staff take note: Pulle is an inveterate office-supply kleptomaniac, so keep those scissors under lock and key.
