Breaking: Road Kill Found!

Are we seeing the earth-shattering results of Gannett's new emphasis on local rather than national news in this morning's Tennessean? The local section leads with word that a dead pig was found in the road in Clarksville. That's not exactly the kind of emphasis on hard local coverage that gets me excited. We look like Green Acres: "keep Manhattan; just give me that countryside."


  1. Afterall, it is all about putting bacon on the table...
    ('sorry, I couldn't resist the obvious)

  2. But after all, this wasn't just any pig; it was "a fugitive potbellied pig".

    A fugitive pig? I don't know enough about the crimes pigs commit to speculate about why he had become a fugitive, but I can tell you that no matter how tough that little porker was, there are a lot of neighborhoods around here that a pig wouldn't dare to enter.
