Stimulus Money in Tennessee
When I see that the NYTimes has written an article on Tennessee, I usually cringe as I click the link. Today's though - following the Tennessean's own series (1, 2) on the way the stimulus money is being used - paints our Governor as what he is at his best: forward-thinking and willing to act. Is his a good long-term strategy? Using welfare money to create immediate jobs in heavily depressed, rural areas? I haven't a clue. But it's nice to see positive, job-creating stories from the stimulus money.

Kind of makes me want to take a road trip to Perry County and buy one of those turnovers from the Armstrong Pie Company.
