The inauguration, held at the public square that fronts the downtown Metro Courthouse, begins at 11 a.m.

Performers will include the Nashville School of the Arts Madrigal Singers, according to mayor’s office spokeswoman Bonna Johnson.

Elected with barely over 50,000 votes out of over 200,000 registered voters! That should tell Karl something!

For those that didn't vote, you get what you deserve, more egotistical "taxpayers donate to Karl's ego dreams".

So very true bfra; we have now agreed on 2 things.

The way the CP poll is going about ego pushing Karl, I am beginning to think he must have paid the few that did come out & vote for him? Even for money, I wouldn't vote for the blow hard!

Your logic isn't great in assertion...
