Please quit harassing me about the unpaid tank rental bills for 2013 and 2014. If you would take a moment and check your records you might notice that I terminated all of my Amerigas accounts in 2012. Your people picked up one of the tanks you keep billing me for in 2012 and the other one was supposed to be picked up two Januaries back. You must have forgotten about it even though I called you several times to come get it and you said you would. Your company is stunningly incompetent.

Want to know how long it has been since Tennessee was mentioned on the Daily Show? Here you go.
If you want to see us mentioned just last night here you go again. You really should see this.
Beyond the frivolity is the discussion of how rural areas empower the conservative movement that is keeping them impoverished, while liberals tend to move to cities and create jobs. It's a good argument that you should read.
Bottom line, if you want to create jobs make sure your state is not mentioned on the Daily Show. With our legislators that is going to be tough...really tough!

So you represent a group that opposes guns being carried into your parks and you are making your case to TN Rep. Rick Womick and in the middle of it he pulls out a gun and he plops a gun on his desk in the middle of their conversation. Is that a threat?

I think the Roane State Raiders play great basketball that should get much better support than it does. There's no three ring circus at halftime like at UT but the game is there and you can sit really close. I'm a fan!

As disingenuous as ever, my congressman says we have to do things the Bush administration already did...
...and they haven't worked, which is what most economist said when they did them. Can we have a little honesty here?

The Rough and Tumble will perform for us Friday March 7 at 7:30. Bring us $10 and we'll let you in.
The Rough and Tumble are secretly known as Mallory Graham & Scott Tyler. Who, in their alter egos, fight for truth, justice, and little known and almost forgotten but almost important holidays, using their super powers of emotive harmonies, clever lyrics, large brown eyes, a beard, and various found objects.
