  •  My beef about TN tourism (8+ / 0-)

    is that they need to demolish all of the billboards that stain the countryside.  Whenever I drive from MA to my birthplace in Lawrenceburg, I am saddened by this tacky form of advertising which prevents you from enjoying the views.  One of the first signs I would take down is the one proclaiming my hometown as the birthplace of Fred Thompson.  

    Luckily, most of my relatives in TN are ardent Democrats, although one of my first cousins claimed her sister could not be a Christian if she did not vote for Bush. My mother, a life-long Republican because she always did what my father told her to do, voted for Obama once my father was deceased.

    Many of the comments on DK are far too condescending about Southerners.  There really are intelligent, progressive blocs of voters there, and they need our support.
