Ike Turner was extremely physically abusive to his wife Tina. When he died, the New York Post's headline summed it up perfectly; IKE 'BEATS' TINA TO DEATH

The biographical musical Tina, about Tina Turner, is expected to open on Broadway next fall. She gave up her U.S. citizenship in 2013 and was granted Swiss citizenship. She now lives near Zurich.

There is no alternative (shortened as TINA) was a slogan often used by the Conservative British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The phrase was used to signify Thatcher's claim that the market economy is the only system that works, and that debate about this is over.

The nearest Tina city or town to me is the town of Tina MO, which is 1,850 miles from my old address in San Francisco (gMap, https://goo.gl/CvBSjX). Tina MO's population at the 2010 census was 157. The town of Tina MO was laid out in 1892, and named after Tina Gilchrist, the daughter of a railroad official. A post office called Tina has been in operation since 1884.

According to Wikipedia the other Tina towns in the US are Tina WV and Tina KY.
