Local Dustup Over “Indoctrination”

This one was pretty amusing…a “she said, she said” over whether or not gun permit instructors are “indoctrinating” people who show up for their courses. This one comes complete with removed content and closed comments–fun for everybody. It seems to me it would be awfully tough to indoctrinate adults who have made a decision on […]


Well, Here We Are *sigh*

Please, please tell me this guy is not typical. Talk to the President, get a Playstation 3 for Christmas…it’s all really about the same thing, huh? I think he made a wrong turn on the way to the Iron Maiden concert and ended up at the Obama rally. Ok, seriously…one thing you won’t hear me […]


Coal Ash Spill Map

My buddy and yours @mr_schwartz has been doing some work with the Tennessee Clean Water Network integrating field data into Google Maps.  He’s done some really cool stuff with the spill in Kingston, plotting not only news, but also the results of water samples at exact lat/longs on this map. He’s also put up a […]


A Quick Hi and Some Thanks!

The last few days have been pretty crazy.  Last Thursday Newscoma and I launched a little project, NewsTechZilla.  We thought it was a good idea and would be a fun way to document some stuff.  Little did we know it would explode.  We’ve seen an unbelievable amount of support (and traffic) so far, and I […]


A Content Generating Machine

Obviously, I’m not talking about me.  I’m talking about Newscoma, who normally writes more before 9 am than I get to read all day.  How lucky am I to get to work on a new project with someone like that? There’s a lot of buzz in the blogosphere right now about the demise of newspapers […]


I Made the Deadline This Year

But just barely. Last year’s “year-end” post didn’t get written until we were literally hours into 2008. I’m on the ball this year though. Lots of changes for me this year!  One big event is that I changed jobs.  More accurately, I quit my job and got another one later.  It was basically a case […]


The Death of News Stories?

I was running with @Mr_Schwartz the other day, and we were (once again) coming up with solutions to the world’s most difficult problems.  Unfortunately for the world, I’m not doing too much distance these days, so there isn’t enough time to fix every problem.  Nonetheless, the topic of conversation this cold and rainy night was […]

New Tennessee Centric Aggregate

A new aggregate site was launched Monday for conservative and free market blogs in Tennessee.  Check out Tennessee News Platoon.  There are already has some great posts up, and I’ve subscribed to the feed.  The goal is government transparency and accountability. Yeah!


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 […]


Obama Assassination Planners Tennesseans?

The News Sentinel is reporting that a plot to Assassinate Barack Obama and murder over 100 people at a Tennessee high school has been busted up. There aren’t many details yet, only that it was a “murder spree” that was to happen in Tennessee and was being hatched by a couple of neo-Nazi skinheads. H/T […]
