There’s a really good Groupon for a Commercial Appeal digital subscription happening right now. For $26 you get one year of digital content, a $239.88 value, and you have the option of adding the Sunday print edition. 50 cents a week is not bad at all.

Congratulations to Start Co.’s Eric Mathews on the publication of his first book, From Garage to Greatness: Succinct First Steps for Early Stage Entrepreneurs. Appropriately, he published the book on a Memphis startup, Screwpulp. You can send any ScrewPulp book to Kindle if that’s your preferred method of reading, including Kindle apps for iOS and Android.
You can support another startup business, Memphis Made Brewing Co., by purchasing a Memphis Made glass tonight at the Flying Saucer. Glasses go on sale at 7 PM.
Also at 7 PM tonight, the Grizzlies host the L.A. Lakers at FedExForum. I bet the “MARC > PAU” T-shirts will be out in force tonight.
Three people have been indicted for the shooting death of Methodist Le Bonheur nurse David Santucci. The murder happened last year on South Main. The two men who were participants in the actual shooting face a maximum of life in prison, and I hope that’s what they get.
I ordered the WWE Network last night. It was easy to pay using PayPal (you can use a card if you prefer that) and within minutes I was browsing the entire library of WWE, WCW, and ECW pay-per-views. I watched a few minutes of ECW’s 1997 Barely Legal show on my iPad. I see there are some videos of a couple of 1970s Madison Square Garden events going up today. Those would be interesting to watch. Most of all, I want to see NXT Arrival tomorrow night.
That’ll do it for the news for now. See you tomorrow, or sooner maybe.
