Visiting the Tina Turner museum in Brownsville, Tenn., which I had no idea was there. I was going to Dollywood and Graceland, and it’s in-between. It’s kind of pitiful and in a little industrial park, not real grand, I promise you. It has her one-room schoolhouse from Nutbush, Tenn., which is nearby, a couple of her old costumes and no mention of Ike Turner at all. The two lovely women working there reminded me of people in the Liberace Museum, kind of like cult-member loyalists. They were so happy someone came in.
