Mercy, Mercy! Don’t sell, blow it up

If Mercy Health Partners really wants to make money by unloading the former Baptist Hospital of East Tennessee, selling the huge waterfront property isn’t the answer.

Who would buy it? The economy stinks and development on Knoxville’s south waterfront is struggling.

But there is a way to make some fast cash — implosion.

Set up a bunch of party barges on the river and sell tickets. Imagine. It could be part of Boomsday.

Sell the broadcast rights for a bundle. Maybe MTV would film it.

There’s money to be made, I guarantee it.
