Yes, I am sweet on Pith lately and I can’t help it. I even promised to be nicer to Tracy Moore and Brantley Hargrove. I have lost all street cred. I’m embarrassed to even show my face around here. I am a failure as a blogger. Maybe even a sell-out.
But here’s the thing.
Pete Kotz is the fucking Ghost of Midwesterners Past and I am a sucker for old Midwestern men. And ghosts.
It goes against my genetic make-up and is an insult to my people if I don’t like him.
All I can do is be honest with you. I am a little biased towards Pith lately. You’re not imagining it.
But still, I think this is an awesome question and I’m curious as to how some of you would answer it.
High speed rail to either Memphis or Atlanta.
Cut the time it takes folks from larger population centers to come here and visit and they will be more amenable to doing just that.
Plus, everyone loves a train ride.
You know how much I hate to agree with Sarcastro? Well, I’m agreeing with Sarcastro. And, ya know, we could go halvsies on the train with Atlanta; each build it up to Chattanooga.
The fine print of my high speed rail plan is, in fact, just a line to Chattanooga. Let GA build their end.
I’m on board with the train thing too… pun intended
But Obama is already funding the train thing, so you gotta come up with something else.
What high speed rail out of Nashville is Obama funding?
Oops – my bad. Obama must still be pissed at Bredesen because his national high speed train proposal does not enter into TN. So we get to pay for a high speed rail system – just not benifit from it.
A giant fence. To keep you Davidson Countians from spoiling my view.
I dunno about Obama, but I’m pissed at Bredesen. How could he not have had workable plans for light rail here? His lack of attention is the reason they’re not funded, since only projects that already, you know, are being worked on/out are getting money.
‘Yes, I am sweet on Pith lately and I can’t help it. ‘
Yeah, me too. I really liked when they said the state GOP should join the White Nationalists. Good times, good times.
nm, I’m pretty sure Bredesen doesn’t have light rail plans is because few people actually see light rail working here. There’s just not enough population density for it to even approach breaking even. You might be able to make a city to city heavy rail line work along the lines of the Nashville-Atlanta line mentioned above, but I don’t see light rail being anything other than a money pit.
They took over an existing line for the commuter line we do have and it still keeps getting further in the hole every day. Add in a huge construction debt and the hole gets even deeper. Though I guess Federal funding would help with that part.
While I appreciate the nod, Auntie, I think something was left out in the editing process. The correct language should ready “very, very handsome old Midwestern men.”
