2. Mayor’s Critics Have Their Own Plans for Strike Anniversary -

Former Tennessee Gov. and Nashville mayor Phil Bredesen formally entered the 2018 race for the U.S. Senate Thursday via a YouTube video. AP on Bredesen’s entry and his background. Republican partisans are already assuming Bredesen is the Democratic nominee and Democratic partisans are already assuming U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn is the Republican nominee. And the expectation of such a match up automatically went on the list of midterm races that those on both sides and pundits inbetween will be watching to get a read on national trends.

6. Franken Announces Resignation From Senate Amid Allegations -

The big reveal at the Greater Memphis Chamber’s annual luncheon Wednesday, at least for me – Dale Watson lives in Memphis now. The Americana musician, producer and author was among the performers at the Peabody and he had a bit of trouble getting the group of 700 business and political leaders to sing along with the refrain of one of his most popular tunes – “I Lie When I Drink and I Drink A Lot" -- with at least a dozen video cameras panning the room.

11. Last Word: Visions of Black Helicopters, 'Extreme Body Rot' and Mall Nostalgia -

A happy council day at City Hall to you and yours. I know this is probably a new and foreign tradition to most of you – the twice a month Memphis City Council meetings every other Tuesday.

But the council will be pretty busy Tuesday.

16. Much at Stake in Memphis-UCF Rematch -

For a game that happened two months ago, UCF’s 40-13 victory over the Memphis Tigers has had incredible staying power. But there are logical reasons for that, too.
