  1. Yeah, what is going on here? I didn't find anything inflammatory about RJ's post. In fact, I've never found anything inflammatory about any of his posts. He is always reasoned, logical, and sticks to arguments as opposed to personal attacks. Deleting one post in a thread is arbitrary
  2. ^This is awesome! Thank you. Sad how many beautiful old buildings the city lost for roads and parking
  3. Alternatively, not having to drive downtown would prevent employees from getting trapped. As much as I think the transpotainment vehicles are cheesy, noisy, and annoying, I'll take them over thousands of fast moving cars and trucks any day.
  4. There's nothing hip about Elon Musk. Have you seen that dude dance?
  5. I agree with this 100%. I would also add that the consolidation of news media is a major factor. Local news has been replaced by national vitriol, constant editorializing to fill air time, and outright propaganda. Our winner take all elections are a factor and so is our two party system. Bottom line, we're f'd.
  6. https://newschannel9.com/news/coronavirus/crowds-swarm-broadway-many-not-wearing-masks-despite-mandate The bars clearly aren't closed. People aren't wearing masks. Perhaps most of the patrons are tourists, but what about the employees? In regards to your question about hatred of Broadway, I think people hate it because it's fake. They hate the peddle taverns and all the other tacky transpotainment B.S. They hate screaming groups of bachelorettes in cowboy boots. Broadway has become a facsimile or pastiche of whatever Nashville means in the popular culture. And a one hit wonder douchebag from Michigan has a "honky tonk" there. Maybe that's just me.

  9. I'm not familiar with the terms of the Preds's control of the arena, but isn't it possible to schedule NBA and NHL games in the same arena? Why does that have to be a zero/sum scenario? I'm asking out of genuine interest, not to be argumentative. But, it's likely a moot point anyway until a NBA owner wants to move a franchise, I don't think there are any expansions on the horizon. Also, I'd like if I-40 went through Titanhog's house, just because
  10. The whole revenue neutral thing is a bit confusing, I'm not sure what the mechanism for doing that is. For instance, if all the property in the county was reappraised and increased in value, I suppose there must be some sort of automatic property tax decrease. Additionally, the reappraisal is an effective rate increase or decrease depending on where you live. After the last reappraisal, many property owners in gentrifying areas of the city (North and East for instance) saw rate increases, while property owners in already wealthy areas (Green Hills for instance) saw rate decreases. However, as made clear last night, there is nothing preventing the Council from raising property taxes via the yearly city budget. Keep in mind, the previous property tax rate (which was not adjusted following the last appraisal), was the lowest property tax rate in the city's history. Secondly, even after the rate increase, Nashville's property tax rate is lower than every other large city in the state. The other tax rate that Nashville can adjust in its yearly budget is the local sales tax. But that is capped at 2.75%. Nashville's local rate is 2.25, which is lower than Brentwood, Franklin, M'boro, Smyrna, which are all at the max rate.
  11. It's possible that the protest marches lead to a spike in infections, but a huge difference between the protesters and ALL the people packing bars on Lower Broadway--and in Midtown apparently--is that the vast majority of the protesters are wearing masks. And it appears that there is at least circumstantial evidence that masks make a difference: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/06/world/asia/japan-coronavirus-masks.html
  12. These have been happening in Nashville every few days for the last two weeks
  13. Damn, thanks John/Jim Cooper. Another chance to artificially boost the economy thrown down the drain
  14. Like the MCC? I don't mind it looking like a stadium
