Randy Smith: Is Whale Watching A Sport?

My wife Shelia and I spent practically the entire month of July on the road; literally. First, the annual Smith family trek to Ponce Inlet, Florida, then a few days after returning from the beach we flew to the other side of the country to board a cruise ship to Alaska.

What if Chattanooga provided a bullet-proof vest to every young black man and black youth in the city limits?   I can hear the scoffing as I write, but think about it. ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Our Horses Vs. DesJarlais

It is well-known that shortly after the despicable “Big Lick” faction of the Tennessee Walking Horse industry put on a very-pointed fundraiser for the equally repugnant Congressman Scott DesJarlais (R-Jasper) two years ago, the misguided doctor has repeatedly tried to bully and strong-arm the U.S. Department of Agriculture on the behalf of the vermin who sadistically torture the ...
