Oh, wait, can I say what he said?

Not being a professional journalist I'm not completely familiar with what 'embargoed until 5:00 p.m. 11/8/05' means on the just released (3:50 p.m.) press release from Metro Nashville Public Schools. But I'm assuming it means I can't say what he says about closing schools [COUGH don't COUGH] until 5:00 p.m.

What rot. Seems a bit unfair and overly controlling if my assumption is correct. The news services can be working on this piece but we mere citizens can't know about it or discuss it until after they've had their shot at telling what is/ought to be public information and the MNPS office is closed? Who made that rule?

Stay tuned.
