It was a nonstop Swiftian orgy of fabulousness at last night's CMA Awards show in downtown Nashville. ... A new Pew Center report compares state economies on their resemblance to the fiscal disaster that is California, finding that Tennessee is better off than most: we get a B- for managing finances and our not-like-California score outpaces 30 other states. California, it will not shock you to discover, scores worst on the not-like-California metric. ... State departments here are planning for budget cuts of up to 9 percent next year, and Gov. Phil Bredesen now says employee furloughs could be in the cards.

The District 5 Metro Council recall election happens today. ... H1N1 vaccines hit Metro schools starting today. ... Gub hopeful Mike McWherter on same-sex adoption: tap dance or misunderstanding? You make the call. ... Concerns about minority and female participation in Music City Center contracting. ... If fetching twitter bots support building a new convention center then it must be a fabulous project to which nobody can object.

Potent reminder that Nashville's sexual orientation protection for Metro workers is just a baby step on the road to civic enlightenment: The Salt Lake City Council unanimously adopted a fabulous ordinance protecting gay and transgender residents from discrimination in housing and employment--public and private--with the support of the LDS church. You know you're lagging when you look to Utah for aspirational progressive social policy.
