Purcell's desk inks three-picture deal
Bill Purcell’s famous front-yard desk, which became more familiar to voters than most candidates for mayor, has parlayed commercial stardom into a three-picture deal with Artisan Entertainment, the hot studio responsible for the groundbreaking shocker The Blair Witch Project.

Studio CEO Mark Curcio said in a statement that Purcell’s desk “has tons of indie cool. It reminds me of a young Keanu Reeves.”
Grand jury indicts Philip’s barber
The Davidson County Grand Jury, after an extensive review of videotape evidence from several televised mayoral debates, has handed down an indictment against candidate Murray Philip’s barber. The candidate’s ominous flattop cut had been the subject of much comment during the campaign.
