Geez I Miss Boone

Some reasons why.

Off the the Big Apple

Blogging will be light for the next month as I will be in New York City.

My Endorsement

Monday, October 8th, 2007

Let me be the first in the world to endorse a candidate for the 2018 elections: Bob Krumm.

Vols Avoid Losing

Sunday, October 7th, 2007

Actually, they won, and won big. They outplayed Georgia on every level. With Florida’s lost, they now control their destiny in the East. It looks like a corner has been turned; let’s hope they can keep the momentum.

Tragedy in Clarksville

Friday, October 5th, 2007

I always find stories like this incredibly depressing, I think because they are just so senseless. Ultimately, there is no rational explaination:

A business owner shot and killed himself during a meeting Thursday night after members voted against his request to rezone his property, witnesses said.Ronald “Bo” Ward, owner of Bo’s Barber Shop, had told the council his business would go under if he couldn’t get his home rezoned as commercial. After the 5-7 vote Thursday night, Ward stood and walked toward the council.

“Ya’ll have put me under … I’m out of here,” he said before shooting himself in the head with a small handgun.

I suspect Ward had more going on in his life than just the rezoning. My condolences to his family and friends.

Coaching 101

Thursday, October 4th, 2007

Philip Fulmer has this coaching thing down pat. He wants to “avoid losing” this Saturday against Georgia. I would rather he said he hopes to win, but certainly, if he can successfully avoid losing, I will be satisfied.

The Times, They Are A-Changin’

Thursday, October 4th, 2007

Of all the major candidates from president, only one — longshot Mitt Romney — has unequivocally endorsed the federal anti-gay marriage amendment to the Constitution. Many of my fellow conservatives will disagree, but I think this a positive development.

Kook Summit

Thursday, October 4th, 2007

The fringes of both the Left and the Right have teamed up to destroy America. No really:

In an unlikely marriage of desire to secede from the United States, two advocacy groups from opposite political traditions – New England and the South – are sitting down to talk.

Tired of foreign wars and what they consider right-wing courts, the Middlebury Institute wants liberal states like Vermont to be able to secede peacefully.

That sounds just fine to the League of the South, a conservative group that refuses to give up on Southern independence.

“We believe that an independent South, or Hawaii, Alaska, or Vermont would be better able to serve the interest of everybody, regardless of race or ethnicity,” said Michael Hill of Killen, Ala., president of the League of the South.

How about this? I say we give the secessionists Baker Island, declare it independent, and let them start their little utopia there.

Say It Ain’t So!

Via Blue Ridge Blog, CBS reports:

Appalachian State coach Jerry Moore is trying to cash in on that Michigan upset. He has contacted at least one agent to poke around for jobs after the season. If he doesn’t land a I-A gig, Moore should have sufficient leverage for a significant raise.

I certainly hope that Moore stays put; he’s done amazing things at ASU. But if he does leave, maybe he could be a candidate for the soon-to-be open head coaching position at UT.
