    Unless it has severely deteriorated in the past couple of years, I wouldn't call Nissan a dump.

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    As I understand it, TDOT has invested significantly in SR109 in recent years to allow it to function similarly to what 840N would have.

    Aside: while I wouldn't call in an obsession, I'm definitely nerd-adjacent when it comes to military (fixed-wing) aviation. Just one of those life long interests. Granted, being a kid during the Reagan military build up in the 80's and a teen during the Gulf War certainly helped fuel this interest. My current fascination is with who will be the next country/consortium to develop a 5th Gen fighter. I know Japan, South Korea, the Euros are looking into it. F15s are getting a bit long in tooth, and the U.S. was prohibited from selling the F22 overseas, so several nations are in need of a air superiority 5th Gen with great kinematic performance.

    Ideas for Nashville

    I'd love to have a SSBN docked here, but its probably infeasible. As I understand it, you need to tear the boat apart to remove the nuclear reactor. Can anyone confirm?

    Ideas for Nashville

    I'd like Nashville to host a rock & roll oriented music festival in the Spring or Fall. Something like Forecastle in Louisville, Pitchfork in Chicago or Primavera in Barcelona Spain.

    CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    The idea was all the high-rises would go downtown proper, while SoBro and areas to the south would be a sea of mid-rise buildings, rather than 1-2 25 story buildings surrounded by a sea of parking lots and 1 story warehouses.

    The State has actively blocked Metro's affordable housing policies. This year they blocked Metro's inclusionary housing ordinance. In TN you increase the supply of housing available.

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the MNPS budget has increased or remained the same every year for a decade or more.

    Why does it only apply to the USD? The GSD should pay as well.
