By the second half of the Reagan Decade, Lower Broad was on its way to becoming a tourist destination. An impressive ascent, considering it was more or less a war zone. How did it do it? It replaced â€œlow classâ€ drunks with â€œhigh classâ€ ones through investment, selective enforcement, and heavy policing. We also meet a teenage boy who was used as bait to arrest dozens of gay men, and we check back in on Mayor Hoot Jackson.
But first, a few words about that fucking tornado.
If you have stories to share about the tornado, or any TN natural disaster for that matter, please leave a voicemail with your story at (615) 348-8165. What are you seeing? What gives you hope? Let us know your experience.
