  1. I have my doubts about that. Growing up in the 'burbs south of Nashville, every other person in our neighborhood was an out-of-state transplant who hated the policies in their former states. Nashville has a lot of folks from Illinois and California who wouldn't want to bring those states' tax laws with them. You'd be surprised by the number of conservatives from those states, especially in areas like Brentwood and Franklin.

    Nashville Bits and Pieces

    Ah yes. The many, many '00s era theme park proposals for Williamson County. Brings back those days.
  4. Trust Knoxvillians: putting a band-aid on the homeless problem is not a solution. The city approved $500k of taxpayers' money to build sanitation facilities underneath the bridge on North Broadway, just a click north of downtown. People are pretty pissed off, and understandably so. It's not that no one wants to help the homeless, it's an issue of misuse of resources and enabling a place for hundreds of people to gather, use drugs, and spread diseases. Edit: Here is a link for those interested. Similar issue to what Nashville is facing with Church St. park. Again, this is not a rag on the homeless themselves, but a criticism of certain policies that enable homelessness to grow at the expense of taxpayers. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.knoxnews.com/amp/1211056002
  5. An example of people promoting "feel good" ideas that won't actually work
  6. I was born the first year outside of the Millennial cohort, so this is something I will never understand Apparently, the kids in my generation like hoverboards, mumble rap and this cringey app called "Tik Tok." If you're in sales, you'll need to shift the paradigm to accompany that crap soon.

    I don't think I have seen it at night, but I'm glad they light it! I had no idea. I think I just have a bad opinion of it because I've always been confused by its look from the interstate. Growing up, whenever I noticed it in the skyline, I always thought it was still under construction.

    They knew what they were doing in the late 1980s. First Tennessee and 5/3rd Bank buildings still look great. On the other hand, I wish something could cover up the "roof" of the James K. Polk building. It looks perpetually unfinished.

    That run was unreal. It was a privilege to watch that live.

  13. Charlotte knows how to execute the whole height and density thing.
  14. Gotcha- you mean stubby in terms of height
  15. What do you mean by that? Is their growth slowing?
