Why can't we be unconventional?

Blogging CM Emily Evans would prefer that we curb our conventionalism:
We are losing focus on what makes Nashville a tourist desination. Is building a box that could be in any city in the country so we can house dentists and school administrators, serve them the slippery chicken dinner and shuttle them back to the airport so they can get reunite with their families really the answer? Are there truly no other options? No music festivals, Bar B Que contests, heritage music events, head races or triathalons? Just a glass box, that's our answer. Not very creative for a city that is home to some of the world's most original people.
Asking this Mayor's Office to think outside of the box seems to be asking too much.

  1. What's a "head race"?

    Also - I enjoyed your posts about the Tennessean trashing up your street. Have you ever thought of confronting the actual person who throw the crap on the ground? Maybe let them know that you at least don't want the crap on YOUR property. I know that the jerks at the office don't listen to you, but maybe the deliverer will?
