They’ve often been told by their constituents to “go jump in a lake,” so we’re not really sure where the controversy lies with tonight’s Great Swim Across the Cumberland. I mean, if all council members were as diligent with these types of requests as Councilwoman Emily Evans (The Fightin’ 23rd!), Councilman Jason Holleman (The Fightin’ 24th!), and Councilman Mike Jameson (The Fightin’ 6th!) then we’d have one happy, snappy city!
That said, tonight’s 500 foot swim, which is scheduled for 5:00pm at Riverfront Park, has already served its purpose – prompting Nashvillians to start chattering about the state of the river and its environs.
On Monday morning, we held our breath and interviewed, in depth, Evans, Holleman, and Jameson. After we made some waves, we rapidly got to the bottom of some of the more contentious issues. We came very close to getting in over our heads, but in the end, it was smooth sailing.
