Nashville

Is anyone else confused about what the national media seems to be ignoring the devastation caused by flooding in Tennessee and other surrounding states (including Kentucky?)  I'm struggling to understand why this isn't a larger national story.  Schools here in Kentucky have been closed for days and homes have been evacuated since the weekend and I know in comparison to what is happening in Nashville and the surround areas we have it good.

Here's hoping the media will pick this story up soon - mostly because there is a large and growing need for help.  The US came together and sent donations through the Red Cross to Haiti - here's hoping we will do the same for our own.

For me, Nashville is home to music I love - so picking a single song to go here isn't easy - but going classic with Johnny Cash seems to be appropriate; and while I love his classic stuff, his version of "Hurt" is one of those songs (and videos) that stay with you forever.

There really hasn't been a lot about it in the news. I did see a story about how Kenny Chesney's house was condemned though. Guess they only care about the rich. Glad you are ok! Love this song.

I have seen next to no coverage at all. The news is worried about Tiger's mistress and who she is dating now, LT and his latest mess up and anything else scintillating. But nothing of the tragedy happening here. I am with you on this one! Oh and I love this Johnny Cash version.

I have wondering the same think, I think the oil spill is such a huge story and has political stuff mixed in, most other stories are left out! It makes no sense to me
