I Guess You Really Can Buy About Anything on eBay
Ebay removed a listing for the tub that James Earl Ray stood in to assassinate Martin Luther King, Jr. Which, I guess, means those commercials are all true--they have everything on eBay.
Yet another reality show with a Tennessee connection
Lindsay Harrison, a student at Trevecca Nazarine University in Mt. Juliet, is a contestant on Animal Planet's King of the Jungle, which kicks off tonight. This article hints a little bit about her experiences on the show, though we can't know too much just yet.
Police Arrest Cheese-Covered Naked Man
On the one hand, Tennessee can be proud to have another contestant in a reality TV show. On the other hand, we have this story about a naked man covered in cheese arrested in Maryville, TN. Gee, he was drunk and stealing nachos, but that really just doesn't even begin to explain why he had no clothes on. I heard on Rick and Bubba that it was suspect Michael Monn's birthday, so I guess he really wanted to celebrate in his birthday suit. Man, can you imagine the looks he got in lock-up?
UPDATE! Rick and Bubba were trying to contact the officer in charge of this case, Captain Cook, and then the suspect Michael Monn to come on the air and answer one question--why was the guy naked? As they signed off this morning, they couldn't find either one to come on the air, but they are pursuing the story. If I hear more, I'll let you know.
10 Commandments: The Musical?!?
It's just odd to think of the guy who played Bruce Wayne/Batman and Jim Morrison on-stage as a singing version of Moses in the new musical version of the Ten Commandments. What will the hit song from the show be, I wonder--"Sit Down, I'm Parting the Sea" or "Plagues, Plagues, Who Can Stop the Plagues?"
Workers or students? After losing ruling, students still insist work is a job
I just found this article about Sheyda Jahanbani and her attempts to unionize and get greater benefits for grad students interesting. I'm not sure how it is at all university, but at UT, we got some health care benefits just for being students.
$10,000 winner suing lottery
Ah, isn't it great to live in a society where there's always a laywer willing to take a case?!? (And you wonder why I am not a huge fan of lawyers!) Second of all, why was the lottery such a great idea for Tennessee again?!?
