Ye Olde Peskye Flye (forgive the silliness, hey, it's old news and it demands Ye Olde Treatmente) catches us up with some old Nashvegas news that broke when he was on hiatus:
Back in December my old pal Jim Hanas of Encyclopedia Hanasiana fame, blogged about a Country Western ditty called "Bumper of my SUV"by Twangtown also-ran Chely Wright. Seems Wright's song got pushed onto the charts by fake letters, phone calls, and requests from fans who pretended to have close relatives in Iraq. I'd intended to direct folks to this story (broken in the Nashville Tennessean) last month, but I took a blog-break instead.Go visit Pesky for the full story.
Pretty soon you'll be able to pin down where you were when The Death Of Public Opinion took place.
