Thursday Catch-All Post
Bits of civic news from around the region:
I'm glad to see that a couple of folks spoke out regarding Metro Nashville's planned use of police cameras in public spaces.
Even though I'm still glad to see that Rep. Stacey Campfield (R-18) is blogging, I'm not sure this post was a particularly smart move on his part. Your call.
The outlook gets more gloomy for embattled State Senator John Ford.
The Chattanooga TFP has a front-page look at how both Harwell and Kurita are allowed to raise money for their US Senate campaigns while representin' in the General Assembly, despite a TN law that forbids sitting legislators from raising campaign money. (I can't remember how to make links to individual TFP stories.) Its Metro section contains a decent wrap-up of last night's Mayoral Runoff debate.
Have you had your vehicle emissions-tested yet? I think I'm going this Saturday. My tags expire this month, and I wonder just how noxious my old car will turn out to be. Hey, at least I don't have a computer chip in it, as my one complaint against the procedures they're using is that those diagnostic devices can produce some off-base results.
Way over in Memphis, Jackson Baker reviews something that's new to me -- The Gridiron Show. Interesting. He goes on to cover a couple of West Tennessee congressmen's latest newsworthy (or, in Ford's case, not) items.
And finally, for now, if this isn't evidence of dogs being "man's best friend," I don't know what it will take to convince you people.
