The overprivileged occupants of Curtiswood Lane, unfamiliar with the sound of the word no, have met their match in Tennessee first lady Andrea Conte, and weird things are happening in the neighborhood as she digs a big hole in the front yard of the governor’s mansion for Conservation Hall. Cats are talking, one neighbor is throwing hissy fits on the street, and another is fretting that Osama bin Laden has placed “Bredesen’s Bunker” on his list of targets.
The unraveling of sanity on Curtiswood Lane is the subject of this story in this week’s Scene. As an added bonus, watch this video from a camera outside the governor’s mansion. The screams you will hear are those of outspoken bunker foe Lorelee Gawaluck.
