I just read the Outdoor article. I think the criticism of Chattanooga was, for the most part, intended to be a humorous depiction of the way local outdoor enthusiasts are terrified that their city will become inundated by tourists on the basis of one article. Obviously some readers didn't catch the joke, including the TFP. Much of the article compliments Chattanooga's outdoor access, including the the poll, which was the premise of the article. Remember, it's called "Outdoor" magazine and not "Jesus Loves My Li'l Southern City" magazine. It's true that many Chattanoogans have little appreciation for where there are in the world because there are too busy commuting to Ootlewah in monster trucks and thumping each other on the noggin with the Bible. Their loss. It's still a great place to explore the outdoors.
