      It is a lovely area and the mountains are beautiful. Anyone who wants to remove mountain tops is absofrickinlutely nuts! It's bad enough when some idiot developer starts putting log cabins everywhere, like on Shield's Mountain in Sevier County, but removing the entire top? A lot of people in Tennessee think that Kentucky folk (especially east Kentucky - outside of the cities like Lexington and Louisville) are a bunch of uneducated hicks. There are jokes like: "You know why the toothbrush was invented in Kentucky? Because had it been invented anywhere else, it would have been called the 'teethbrush' "
