The best quote at BlogNashville was from John J. Hooker, co-founder of the Tennessean and founder of Hospital Corporation of America. He said, during Dave Winer’s incredibly contentious session about respectful disagreement, “Is meanness all bad? You can’t call a son of a bitch a son of a bitch without calling him a son of a bitch.”
Hooker, 75, is incredibly golden throated in the Cary Grant tradition, looks like Central Casting’s version of the Southern gentleman, and is rumored to also be a local street ranter, often seen walking the streets in his straw hat and 3 piece suit, screaming into the air. Totally charming, and maybe also nuts. When does his blog start?
