Last Post 'til (after) Nashville
I really wanted to follow up on the Hamilton County budget sessions before heading out of town -- I even wanted to attend some -- but it was not to be. (I need to figure out a way to give my day job the pink slip and thus blog more earnestly and fruitfully on local and state public affairs.)
There are more shenanigans at the Election Commission. Stop and think for a minute about what the HCEC's mission is -- or should be. Then wonder, as I do, how all of that gets so buried by petty partisanship. It's disgusting.
I know, you can read the Chattanoogan yourself, so you don't need me to simply provide links to it. One of the things I'm hoping to come away with from BlogNashville is a fresh perspective on how to make this civics blog what it really needs to be, i.e., a true alternative to the established media (online and otherwise), one where civics are given the appropriate priority, albeit one with the inevitable personality infusion that weblogs are prone to having.
With that, I'm bound for the West End.
