No. 158: 1/4 of the News Fit to Print

⁂ Nashville's Alt-Daily ⁂ Nashville Headlines · Covid Gutter · Things to Do · Much More!

Good morning, everyone.

The week between Christmas and New Year's deserves its designation dead week. The only things flying through the news are the dying impulses of a media machine that's worked for two, long years to make Covid-19 into as great an existential threat as possible. As Omicron reveals itself to be a benign strain more akin to the common cold, that journalists across the world continue to write hysterically about it is only evidence that nothing else is happening.

Below, we round up some Nashville headlines and give you a quick rundown of Covid lunacy. Dead week means there is less to say and less to do.
