I have recently had cause to be generally unhappy with the way the Nashville police respond to things. The Seattle police force certainly had it’s problems, but Nashville is quite clearly not serving and protecting all it’s citizens equally and it’s a shame. I know it’s tied to a lot the other urban problems we have, but it doesn’t seem like it’s going to get addressed any time soon. Also I know it’s funny to joke about the rivalry between Memphis and Nashville, but fucking hell, Memphis, really? I’m not saying it wouldn’t have gone down the same in Nashville, but the fact that it didn’t happen here makes me feel at least a little better about our cops. Even if it would appear that steroid usage is common among them.
It is a another glorious under 80 day in Nashville. I am going to celebrate by cooking out. If you are reading this and you want to come by and eat with me and miss Ladybug, call me.
God, I love E.Nash. The the 35 minute delay between writing this and the paragraph above, my pal, Heartbreaker, came by, brought back some stuff he’d borrowed, invited me out to a show tonight and hung out and generally encouraged me on the work I am supposed to be doing today. In the PNW people don’t just drop by and hang for a bit. I love it when they do.
