Brown's Diner wins grease fire race
The question that has been the object of a betting pool for years among local diner patrons was answered definitively last Thursday morning when firefighters were called to Brown's Diner to quell a grease firebut only moments before they were called to Rotier's for the same reason.
"My ten bucks had been riding on Rotier's, but I guess I was just barely wrong," said one local attorney, who said he wasn't ruling out foul play. But he took the loss in stride: "I hear that kitchen at Brown's went up like a Vietnamese monk."
Young Buck delays Sears-Kmart merger
Kmart's purchase of Sears suffered a setback last week when Nashville rapper Young Buck stabbed the Sears president during a news conference melee.
The rapper, whose album Straight Outta Cashville has put Music City on the rap map, was at the news conference as part of a promotion in which his song "Bang Bang" is being featured to advertise the fine selection of firearms in the sporting goods section of the stores.
The stabbing incident capped a busy week for Young Buck. Earlier he had apologized for anyone who was offended by the Monday Night Football skit in which he appeared. Many viewers were shocked during a taped locker room segment in which Young Buck dropped a towel and jumped into the arms of Philadelphia Eagles player Terrell Owens.
Race for the bottom
Nashville television news directors sat up and took notice last week when a Cleveland station set record ratings for its late news by having reporter Sharon Reed do a first-person piece about being a nude model.
Artist Spencer Tunick, who apparently specializes in such things, staged a mass nude photo shoot in Cleveland earlier this year, and Reed agreed to cover the story as a participant rather than as an observer. What the record-breaking number of viewers saw in the story was a revealing look at art, and an even more revealing look at its popular anchor.
"Next sweeps period, we're going to have nude anchors on at least two stations," one local TV observer predicted. "I hear that Chris Clark is already making plans for his series, 'I am the human Musica.' "
