    #Lamarwatch: Carr Reveals Weak Fundraising of 'a Little Bit Less Than $100,000' (update: it's worse)

    More like $52,000, they say. The Cowardly Lamar! raised $837,000. Is the an indication that the frequency of GOP congresspeople's right knees jerking up and smacking them in the chin every time the Tea Party burps is going to decrease?

    Nah. Too watered down:

    Yeah. My daughter in Denver put her boyfriend of 6 years as her domestic partner and he is now on her insurance.
    BTW, thanks for putting stuf back up here so some of us can read it.

    Toot the horns: South Knoxvillians celebrate Henley Bridge reopening

    Great news, but it does it come with a chilling effect? With all this traffic now diverting elsewhere, does this mean the death of Gay St?

    Sad day for downtown. We could have had a mall on Gay St.

    That's right! Despite naysayers like Neely below, if the Henley Bridge had stayed closed, we might eventually have been able to remove the parking lanes and sidewalks on Gay to make it a worthy 4-lane highway, with flanking retail drive-up lanes on either side for a more convenient vehiclean Shoppertainment! experience.

    I can report that I have now actually driven on this bridge. I found that it solidly supported my crossing, and is markedly wider than my recollection.

    I, too, have noticed a marked narrowing of my recollection, which is no wider than a goat path at best and completely overgrown where seldom traveled.
