Diane Black represents everything that is wrong with politics in our country. She is a very wealthy partisan who only advocates for the super rich, and she is as dirty as they come. We can do so much better.
I am SO upset over the front cover
of this weeks Murfreesboro Post.
Shocked beyond words. Our home is
not anti-guns, we are anti-violence.
This cover crossed the line! I am
not for, nor against either Diane or
Lou Ann. I do not know politic enough
to have an opinion. But, I can not understand why Lou Ann would put
a smile on her face and point a gun
at a photo of Diane at a target range.
This was done with intent, a women
pointing a gun at another women,
Both women have children, what do you
think Diane's kids feel. How would
anyone feel about this happening to
them. Murfreesboro Post's motto is:
"Community-based newspaper" with this
photo plastered in every Post
newspaper box window what message is
the Post passing on to the community or
youth of this community?
The community newspapers MUST stop this
National Equirer survival tactics at
the expense of the community and our
youth. Were adults setting examples for
the youth, is this the example you want
It's obviously a doctored photo - the Post added the picture for comical effect. It's tongue-in-cheek humor, obviously. Get over it. Guns really aren't that scary to sane people. You're delusional if you think that photo is going to cause your kid to go on a raging psychopathic killing spree. Want a real shock? Go look at the video games your children are playing right now. We'll wait...
Culpepper...your right guns aren't that
scary to sane people, violence is.
You read into the raging psychopathic killing spree, it never crossed my mind, only yours. Hope you did not hold your breathe waiting for me to check my kids video games, I'm a mom it is my job to
know what video games, movies, television
shows, newspapers, magazines, and friends
they are exposed to.
print newspapers need to do whatever they can to get you to pick up the product. the shock value worked. this picture isn't going harm our youth or community.
I agree with you Kimberly! I was shocked beyond belief when I saw this cover story! I came to the website specifically to see if anyone else was as outraged as me. Photoshopped or not, this is awful either way! If The Post was attempting humor with this, they are WAY off the mark! Just ask Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona! As for what scares people, guns? No. Two leaders of our great state posing or being posed in a photo with machine guns pointed at each other? Yes, very scary. It is not necessary for The Post to use this type of shock value to get folks to buy their product. This makes me seriously question the judgement of those in charge at the paper. I'll never look at one of their editorials with the same respect again!
The front page of the June 17 edition of the Murfreesboro Post (definitively the hippest newspaper in the South, arguably in all of America, having been compared to an amalgam of Rolling Stone and the New York Times . . . back when the NYT was a decent medium) featured a front-cover-oage photo of Lou Ann Zelik pretending to take aim at a photo of Dian Black on a firing range.
Immediately, there came roars of "bad tase," "inapprorpiate behavior" ( what a wuss term), and numerous calls denouncing the photo . . . rather, the implied message.
For those with a mental capapcity above the wards of a mental institution, it loomns quite obvious that this photo was metsphorical regarding intent. I highly doubt that Zelenik will challange Black to an old-fashioned, "Marshal" Matt Dilllon-style pistol duel, where the two combatants stand back-to-back, wall x-numer of paces in opposite directions, turn around, and commence shooting.
In the court case of Black vs. Zelenik, Zelenik alleges Black steered "millions of dollars in no-bid state contracts to her husband's firm though her position as astate senator. Too, Black's all.eged actions were detailed in a past issue of The Gallatin Newspaper.
Expectedly, Black is saying Zelink's allegations are untrue and slanaderous; Zelenik, of course, claims her allegations bear merit . . . typical tit-for-tat.
I don't enough of the particulars to say yeag or nay. However, I do have an intellectual suggestion. At the Ruco Jail, have Black and Zelenik - both attired in a full-piece swimsuit, like the lady wrestlers of old - compete in an old-timey rasslin' match. If Ron Fryar can use his omnipresennt media clout to land Struttin' Jackie Fargo as the ref, it'll be a SELLOUT . . . bite you tongue and get a haircut, Don King!!!
I almost forgot! If Jackie Fargo is unavailable to ref the Black vs. Zelenik main-event headliner, then ex Rutherford County Sheriff Truman Jones would be an apt choice. Of course, planned protocol would have to be cleared with current Rutherford County Sheriff Robert Arnold . . . but award-winning MP columnist Dan Whittle - with his many high-end connections - can handle such, no sweat. In the meantime, I'll reach out to Rick Flair and see, precisely, how to advertise this Black vs. Zeleink rasslin' match, to ensure it draws spectators all the way from the Blue Bloods of Capitol Hill to the Red Bloods of Readyville!
Diane, Lou Ann, you gals best procure trainers and plan on hitting the gymn 3-4 hours per day . . . it's on like Domkey Kong!
Alert - MP Publisher Ron Fryar and MP Editor Micheolle Willard:
Be advised that attempts are being made to contact long-time, mega-successful wrestler/wrestling promoter Rick Flair/a.k.a. "Nature Boy," in an attempt to land Flair - to pun a bit - in our "corner." It is imperative that all parties involved pause and ponder the historical-political significance of a possible Black-Zelenik rasslin' match. Too, I have an octogenarian fenmale who is sifting through her wardrobe chess in an attempt to locate two one-piece bathing suits, similar to the ones worn by female wreatling legend "Fabulous Moolah" back in the '50s-'60s. Keep your fingers crossed that the octogenarian is successful with her wardrobe hunt . . . so very much is at stake, here!
