Flooding in Tennessee Possibly Worse Than Oil Spill
Flooding last week in Nashville, TN threatened one of country music's most famous cities, bringing widespread disaster and death to at least 23 people. Aside from the loss in life, the greatest concern has been over the damage to the cultural center of Nashville, known for its live country music which plays in bars and restaurants nightly. The floods have caused extreme damage to these areas, wiping out not only memories but also part of Tennessee's identify. Luckily, the famous Grand Ole Opry House has been preserved. We can only hope that with time much of this unique culture can be preserved and that assistance can come to the community as soon as possible.
