The recent flooding in Nashville, Tennessee, has done more than cost loads of money in property damages. For some country music fans, the water has invaded not only the city, but the genre of country music as well. Nashville has long been the epicenter of the country music movement, from times when Hank Williams gave it the moniker of Cashville to its modern day reincarnation as a music machine, cranking out the new generation of country music. If Nashville is the center of country music, then the Grand Ole Opry is its beating heart. This venue has paved the way for many current and future stars and many artists recall the emotions of the first time that they stepped foot onto the legendary stage.

The general manager, Pete Fisher, has used this opportunity to explain the nature of the historic stage, stating that “the Grand Ole Opry is not a place, it's a show.” Preliminary estimations of the damage lead experts to believe that it will be at least three months before the Opry is operational again.

Another story that has captured national attention is the Washington Post Company's decision to sell its flagship publication, Newsweek Magazine.

Short of running daily issues (tantamount to business suicide), news magazines cannot stand a chance against their online counterparts. Newsweek has been in print for 77 years, but that streak is now in jeopardy. The investment bank of Allen
