  1. What do you propose doing? Forcing them to camps in rural areas? If people are quarantined for the appropriate time, the risk of infecting someone else is extremely low. It's more dangerous to try and move people who are carrying the virus, especially if a certain percentage do not want to be moved. I can only assume you are simply overreacting because of an uninformed viewpoint combined with stress, and you'll develop clearer thoughts on this when you calm down.
  2. Definitely not a crime. Quite reasonable, in fact.
  3. Those are M88 Armored Recovery Vehicles (think tow trucks for tanks). A lot of National Guard units are engineers and logistics, so there is probably a National Guard battalion somewhere getting new vehicles or being converted to a new mission.
  4. So...has WeGo been subtly trying to re-brand the Music City Star to the WeGo Star? I've noticed in much of their marketing materials and in all of the post-tornado service updates they're referring to it as such. Personally, I am not a fan. The WeGo re-branding as a whole chose a horrible name, and rebranding the train as the WeGo Star is just confusing.
  5. Just got in to work and saw this as I was doing my usual news check. Utterly devastating, can't believe it.
  6. Has anyone heard any rumors about what British Airways has planned for Nashville in the mid-term? Specifically, when are the 7-day-a-week flights going to start?! I want to be able to fly home non-stop any day of the week, dang it! BEND TO MY WILL, BA!
  7. WOW. I'm away for a few weeks and this is what I miss. I absolutely cannot believe that we've devolved to lawsuits because Cooper can't extract his cranium from his rear end. Here's to hoping this doesn't completely torpedo soccer in Nashville.
  8. I was driving east on Broadway and stopped at the light at the West End intersection. I was floored by the amount of massing this brings to that intersection. The car lots are going to be dwarfed soon!
  9. They must be relocating 12th Street to downtown! I know it's small, but sloppy editing like that isn't good. They need to find a more professional graphic designer for their material.
  10. Walking back to the car last night from the Titans game across the Woodland Street bridge. I've been walking this same route more times than I can remember after Titans games for the last 20 years, but haven't been able to the last three years because of deployments and other obligations keeping me away on game days. It is astonishing just how much it has changed, not just over the last 20 years, but the last 5, especially how much the skyline is filled in and stretches to the south. I remember when they built the Pinnacle building, and how I thought the design was cool but how I really didn't like the placement. It stood out on its own too much, and I thought it should have been built over one of the many surface lots north of Broadway. There was no way it would ever fit in, and would always just be this weird outlier outside the skyline!
  11. Hey everyone, I know it's super late notice, but I was wondering if anyone would be available for a mini-meet over lunch or coffee on Monday, maybe around 11:00 or noon. I'm thinking Hillsboro Village area. If anyone is interested, let me know!
  12. Literally one empty seat (next to me, conveniently), and that was apparently only because someone missed their connection. It really goes to show how much the current terminal setup is limiting the potential of the airport.
  13. No way! My dad has PSLs in 310 row V I believe. Spent many a Sunday in those seats. Will be there this weekend for the first time in years!
  14. On an additional note, I flew in on BA223 this afternoon. So convenient to not have to worry with connections in New York, Boston, DC, or Charlotte. It seemed like a pretty even split between Americans and Brits on the flight, with some other nationalities sprinkled through. BNA has GOT to get a better handle on passport control. Only three officers made the line go very slow (I still don't understand how UK Border Force personnel are friendlier and manage to not make it feel like an accusative interrogation, unlike how US CBP treat their own citizens). The infrastructure felt slapdash and temporary. Even the queues were too short for the number of passengers involved. All in all a very poor experience gate-side.
  15. This is actually pretty common throughout Europe. I've experienced it at Heathrow, Luton, and Palma, and I know it happens elsewhere. Think non-gate parking spaces. Either for shuttle boarding (see above) or parking.
