Appalachia and the Bush

So our very lame duck Bush has redrawn the boundries of Appalachia to shake some of the poorest folks in our country out of a few more needed dollars. Is this a plot to add a few more Ohio and Kentucky counties to tip the States to his side for the McCain drive for the White House?

It seems a little late in his game to play like this. I guess we will see soon enough if it makes matters worse.

No Knoxville, bad humans!

Inside of a six month period my little scrappy city by the Tennessee river has had a church shooting/killing, a school shooting/killing, the largest consumer rip-off of fuel ever and now a mall shooting/killing. At least it makes the Wall Street and war news seem further away. I have decided bars are the safest place in town to hang out.

So if you need me I will be at the pub to not make matters worse.
