is supposed to keep you free and clean as Townes Van Zant once wrote. Well, sorry Townes, I think it stinks.
I’ve been in hotel rooms for the past 3 weeks, travelling back and forth to Southaven every few days. I have few of the comforts of home, I miss my wife and kids, and these hotel beds are about as good for my back as the cold floor.
Work is good. I led the 5 tonight with a story on the Pope’s encyclical. I also met with the pastoral staff of one of the largest churches in Nashville today. It’s pretty cool when you’re talking to the pastor of some of country and Christian music’s biggest stars.
I’m learning my way around town and shooting and editing is much easier now than it was this time last week.
I’ve got to say (again) that the quality of television news in Nashville is far better than it is in Memphis. Maybe it’s the fact that there’s not 2 or 3 murders to cover every day. Every lead story isn’t about a murder or an investigation. Of course, I’m sure all of the stations in Memphis are leading with the Ford hearing. There’s a good bit of that here too, but just enough to know what’s happening.
I wish I had more interesting things to post about today. Sorry. I don’t have anything on Claudia’s debut on 3. I asked my wife about it but she doesn’t watch the news on 3 so I’m uninformed.
