Well, CNN’s Anderson Cooper is coming to town today. I hope to hell he gets over to the fellas’ school in time to cover the middle school talent show.
My prediction for his empathetic cry moment: on the steps of the Country Music Hall of Fame, in waders from Barneys, wiping a semi-tear from his eye with a piece of damp sheet music for a Ferlin Husky song. He’ll look into the camera and say, “On the wings of a snow white dove, Music City will rise anew.”
Don’t get me wrong; we luv ya, Anderson! Get us some more of that FEMA money!
Oh right. The FLOOD. That ironically has caused a major clean-water shortage. That has at least six of us resisting the urge to wash our cars.
