No. 15: Where's Lee? (Aug. 5 - 11)

Actually in Nashville, mostly

Have been traveling and hanging out with family and stuck on two tiny planes in rows where I could not recline my seat but the person in front of me could and did, making it impossible to for me to open my laptop, and seriously, do not recline your seat on a tiny plane. (Unless it’s like a private plane where it does not matter.) So apologies, this is belated, and includes last week’s schedule too. More actual news tomorrow …

Housekeeping: The really nice people at Substack are trying to work with me to turn this into a functional news outlet, so I am pushing off paid subscriptions for a month or two. In the meantime, I’m on Venmo @cgervin if you want to help fund my reporting. If you want to send me tips, I’m on Signal, Confide, Twitter and Facebook. You can also reply to this email. And now you can actually mail me documents at the P.O. Box listed below!

Please, if you were forwarded this, sign up for the newsletter. No one else in this state is covering Tennessee politics from such an uncompromising stance. If that matters to you, support me.
