"His actions in the Battle of the Ganjgal Valley were no less heroic than General Washington crossing the Delaware in 1776."
Captain Swenson's actions were heroic and worthy of the Congressional Medal of Honor but comparing them to George Washington's defeat of the British at Trenton is the definition of hyperbole.
I know when I was running this paper, Weston Wamp would be lucky to be delivering it, not writing in it! Standards have certainly dropped.
A very very bad idea. I had to join two unions as a summer employee here during the early 70's. The time spent trying to game the system and plotting how to do the least amount of work for the most amount of pay was rewarded when those two companies moved most of their manufacturing offshore. The guys I worked with weren't bad people per se, they were just provided with too many disincentives to be productive.
At least Bennett is predictable and consistent, not that those two attributes are what a quality political cartoonist would aspire to.
Oh, Clay Bennett is still at the paper? I was thinking he would've got canned with that Johnson guy.
Hadn't checked in for a while. Shouldn't have bothered. SOS just different day.
The hit dog hollers and man, has he been hollerin'!
It's Bush's fault!
Oh! I get it. You're comparing opposition to excessive government regulation to cutting down stop signs.
As with healthcare, our federal government's involvement with higer education has been the catatlyst for price increases well in excess of inflation. Thank you Washington.
Scottie - nice guy but hardly a successful businessman. His uncle built the company and sold it. Scottie was the face of the organization and just got "retired" by Dean Foods which owns the Mayfields brand. Does Hamilton County and Chattanooga really want a representative who will be cummuting out of Knoxville's airport? Without earmarks there's not a lot a freshman congressman can do, in fact there's little a congressman can do without seniority. The election of Mayfield would be the first time since 1885 that a representative from other than Hamilton County would represent the 3rd District.
