There are few things I love more than Bigfoot stories from Williamson County from the ’70s, Bigfoot stories from Bob who goes to Brewhouse West and The Alley (and actually sketched me a picture of what he saw in Marshall County on a napkin) and popping popcorn to watch an epic battle.
Bigfoot did not have shoulders in the sketch I saw. Just wanted you to know for future reference.
Today, the corn has been popped and a box o’ Merlot is waiting for me behind the curtain. The Ides of March aren’t even here yet for a couple of days and yet we may have seen some Tennessee style Et Tu Brute happenings in the GOP party.
First of all, I’ll let Jeff Woods explain:
Speculation is rampant at Legislative Plaza this morning over Rep. Matthew Hill’s real motivation for voting against wine in supermarkets. Is he a crafty hillbilly Machiavelli or just another unpredictable nutjob? That’s the gist of the debate.
Hillbilly Machiavelli may be the name of my new band although I’ve never played an instrument in my life. Yesterday it was Rep. Mike Turner using the term Poverty Pimps about workers’ rights but I don’t think Woods has ever coined a finer phrase.
And then we hear about the Chuck Fleishman/Smith alleged leak. Chattanooga is interesting right now because they are electing some progressive local leaders. Interesting. Very interesting.
Just a couple of observations on this fine day and, yeah, I’ll do my best to ask Bob to draw me another picture of the Bigfoot he saw near Lewisburg.
You are welcome.
