Morning Roundup: Gobble Gobble Hey

Posted By on Wed, Nov 25, 2009 at 9:29 AM

Tomorrow's Thanksgiving, but folks are already flooding the airport getting ready to descend upon far-flung family members everywhere. Hope your neuroses will fit in the overhead bin! While you're doing that math, don't forget to check out the airport's "brand new cell phone waiting area, the free waiting area for pick-up, the two long-term parking and the new short-term lot." ... If your heart goes out to homeless folks, think twice before taking them your Thanksgiving leftovers: It's apparently illegal unless you've taken and passed a food safety course from Metro Public Health. And since the class is offered once a month, I'm guessing it's too late to take it this month. Instead, consider joining up with a church or civic organization already organized to feed the homeless this year, since those folks are exempt from this particular law. ... The road to hell is paved with good intentions, or at least the road to impeding progress: Councilman Charlie Tygard wants to help get more art projects throughout the county and faster, but the Metro Arts Commission is all, jeez, we're already doing that! ... Spring Hill Mayor Michael Dinwiddie said he would fire anyone who leaked info that the city's police chief failed a drug test. Well, it was leaked, but he said that doesn't mean he was trying to hide anything. Nope, nothing at all. ... Great news: 10 percent of Nashville homeowners are upside down on their mortgages. ... Nashville also ranks 56th on a list of dangerous cities, which is better than last year, when we were three spots higher on the list. Except, whoops, as a state we're still the sixth worst overall.
