I’m Over Here Now

Obviously, there’s been a slowdown of posts here over the last few months. Posting here is going to probably going to remain slow for and maybe get even slower. Lately I’ve been posting over at scottadcox.com for the most part. The posts there are shorter, more snarky, and even less on topic. I’ve had less […]

Atlas Shrugged Creeping Into North Knoxville!

WBIR did a story on my buddy McNabb’s office/residential building he’s been working on. He bought this horrible looking building on Broadway a couple of years ago, and he’s put a lot of hard work into it. I was over there about a month ago to see the almost complete office space. He’s also putting […]

Knoxville Overground Spring Gala Fundraiser

This one is truly over ground. Tomorrow night KO is hosting a gala on the 6th floor of the Sunsphere (that’s one floor above the Wig Shop). The public is welcomed to attend, just a cool $25, but there is a limit to only 120 guests. Official KO members, KO sponsors, and members of KO […]


Swine Flu in Knoxville at Bearden High School?

Just read djuggler’s tweet saying Bearden High School will be closed for a week. And his better half, cathymccaughan says, What good does it do to close the high school when the teens will be at the mall or movies every day? Just curious…do they close schools when someone gets the regular flu? It appears […]


Knoxville Tea Party Wrap Up

Imagine my surprise to find that in addition to the few fringe/dangerous/extremist wing nuts who ventured out to express their disagreement with the insane spending going on in Washington, a couple of thousand other folks showed up as well. After driving around for 30 minutes or so trying to find a parking spot (must’ve been […]

KPD, DAs, (non) DUIs,

I’m going to have to try and be delicate with this one…where to start? First the background:  A Knox County Assistant District Attorney, Samyah Jubran, was done a favor by KPD Officer Hakan Dururvurur when he let her drive home even though he thought she was too impaired to do so after a traffic stop.  What the […]


I Don’t Get Out Much

  At least not anymore.  But I was out for most of the day today, at least if you consider the mall and grocery store as “out”.  When I say I don’t get out much, I’m talking about the house and my pajamas.  I mean that I literally don’t get out of my pajamas much. […]


Some Great Reading on Knoxville History

Doesn’t matter if you’re local or not, there’re two great stories in the KNS over the past two days that are very intriguing.  The story is about two possibly connected murders from 1968 and 1972 respectively.   Everything needed for a good novel is involved–an unsolved murder of a prominent wife whose husband was having […]
