Move-in touches Nashville columnist

Glowing review by Tennessean columnist Tim Chavez on his Political Salsa blog of move-in day, which he happened upon by accident last Saturday:

Within the borders of Vanderbilt, there was immunity to the virus sickening the rest of Nashville and Davidson County.

In fact, there was sense of welcoming, of actually wanting all these differences for a higher purpose that goes with learning, enlightenment and progress.

It took me 15 minutes to walk from my car parked in a space at least five blocks from Vanderbilt Medical Center. And I enjoyed every step. I was like a child in a toy store at Christmas. It seemed as if I had been transported to Beijing, or the United Nations in New York. The world was in my view and within my hearing. And it was marvelous to behold.
