Eric Crafton is back with his English-as-Metro's-official-language bill, which Mayor Bill Purcell vetoed last year. As Mike Byrd writes:
Lord Eric is back and this time he aims to bitch slap anyone who gets in the way of the only issue that's ever gained him any celebrity, whether on Fox News or in the Nashville City Paper: English Only. You've created a monster, Nashville (or should we just blame Bellevue?). CM Eric Crafton cannot get enough attention with his long string of education-related memorializing resolutions in council. And a homeschooler's church-lady link love is just not enough for him to get some strong play on the intertubes. His few seconds of fame on Fox are now stale. So, he is jumping back in to save us and soak up any notoriety he can get. The mainstream media is more than willing to give him the attention he craves. He is a spectacle.
And Crafton has a propaganda page too. Here's the Valentine we wrote him when his proposal was first in play last year.
