Mean streets: Pothole patchers stare down thousands of damage sites from a wet, cold winter

Potholes are the great leveler. They waylay Toyotas and Teslas alike, without thought to age, income or educational attainment. In a divided world, they are a uniter for focused hatred. And around Nashville and elsewhere in Tennessee they are spreading like misinformation on social media.
