From the Publication of Record Known as 'Duh'

Posted By on Fri, Nov 6, 2009 at 11:24 AM

The New York Times made a 36-hour fact-finding mission to Nashville, and the write-up is already available online. You'll find shout-outs to Grimey's, the Hermitage Hotel, Prince's Hot Chicken Shack, Las Paletas and other worthy local institutions. You may also think you're residing in a local institution after this blockbuster lead:
NASHVILLE isn't nicknamed Music City for nothing. Singers, songwriters and pickers -- not to mention their toe-tapping admirers -- have been pouring into the Tennessee capital for decades. Yes, the city's rhinestone-studded past still glimmers....But there's more to Nashville than country music, especially in the once-sleepy neighborhoods that now beat to a different rhythm.
"Nashville isn't nicknamed Music City for nothing." And to think the Aug. 4, 2008 Huntington, W.Va. Herald-Dispatch waited two whole graphs to arrive at the same conclusion. Talk about burying the lead. (Though to be fair, the Herald-Dispatch scooped the Gray Lady with its headline: "Nashville offers more than just music.") H/t: bb.
