I've seen some rough storms come through St. Elmo, but I've never seen so many large trees come down in such a short period of time. When I left for work at 8:30, everything looked normal. When I came home to check on things at 11:00, there were probably a dozen trees down that I could see - in the road or on houses. They weren't broken so much as pushed over, roots and all.

I was at Lupi's with my family that night. I was outside with my 3-month old when several police cars showed up. One of the cops ran up to me and asked me if I had heard shots fired. Obviously I hadn't. I assumed (/hoped) that it was a prank and I feel really relieved that it was. We probably would have gone for a walk after Lupi's, but with all the comotion and the possibility of gunfire, we decided to just go home instead.

"In 1994 the state of Tennessee introduced TennCare, a public plan designed to cover the state's uninsured. How is it working? Not well. TennCare nearly bankrupted the state. The initial budget for TennCare was $2.6 billion dollars and gave coverage to 500,000 Tennesseans. But after its first few years costs spiraled out of control."

"Unfortunately the cost of the program rose quickly, eliminating the savings. At its peak TennCare's budget was $8.5 billion, nearly one-third of the state's budget, and close to 1.5 million people were enrolled. It was simply not sustainable at those levels. By 2005 Tennessee Govenor Phil Bredesen was forced to make drastic cuts in the program."
