Booming headline in Tennessean

Booming headline in Tennessean: While traveling, I always like to check-in with what’s happening back home in Nashville. This just rolled into my newsreader: “Human cannonball recovering after back spasm” – David “The Bullet” Smith, a human cannonball, went to the hospital on Saturday after being shot 150 feet out of a 35-foot cannon at the Williamson County Fair. But his father, David “Cannonball” Smith Sr. is now in town to make sure the show goes on.

    And what did the son say when his father arrived? “Thanks – POP!”

    There are precious few details to this story. I used to know a Dave Smith from East Tennessee. I think he lives in Texas now. He came to town a couple of years ago. He’s an engineer, computer programmer, some such. Definitely the sort who could have a hobby like human cannonballing. Right???
