So desperate for attention is the troll. Pathetic.

Re: “The new norm in Nashville: House-race money for school-board races

What is with these Nashville Scene reporters? This paper is not to be taken seriously. Just like Fox News giving it to their people who share their views.. only interviewing one candidate, painting their favorite as a hard-working victim and her evil opponent. Mary Pierce has integrity and class, something Sharpe does not have. If you've ever talked to or met Mary you would see that. Mary is creative and cares about all the schools and wants them to succeed. She actually has ideas and creative solutions. Becky tells people what they want to hear..she has no plan because she thinks the schools are the best already. If you care about educating our kids and our future, vote for Mary Pierce!

Re: “Can Someone Please Stop Gov. Haslam From Writing Letters?

CMAH, you don't have any need to explain. Your love for your fellow human beings is clearly obvious from your post. It oozes forth, not unlike pus from an infected wound.

What is happening now is that we are following the law making it illegal to deport alien kids from non-contiguous countries. I'm sure you remember this is the law pushed for by George W. Bush.

If you want America to have different immigration laws, then vent your wrath on John Boehner and the Repubs in Congress who are blocking them.

Re: “Can Someone Please Stop Gov. Haslam From Writing Letters?

OK. You're a hater. I really wasn't planning to tell you so, but since you asked for it, you can have it. And well deserved, too. Glad you recognize yourself in the mirror, hater. It's no smokescreen; it's just what you right-wingers are. No one has refined hate to the degree that the hardcore racist teabagger/dittoheads spout every minute of every day.

Actually, notguilty, President Obama got more votes, period.

Lydia Peelle was a speechwriter for Governor Bredesen, and she was a good one. She is also a published author. But the letters were written by Bill Mason, who did the same for Vice President Gore for many years. He was good, too; also a published author. But you are right; their level of skill and professionalism seems to be absent in Haslam's office. The Governor should seek out some better quality help.

Or maybe learn to write himself. As did Bredesen, Gore, and Lamar Alexander.

Re: “Warped Tour at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds, 7/29/14

Puh-lease. First, you already did the woe-is-me, 20% female thing in your preview of this show. Second, I was interested to hear how our only hometown band on the Warped Tour did. Can we get an actual review?

Re: “Cooper Makes a Cameo in John Oliver Segment on Nukes

Jim - I'm not sure what was humorous in JohntheRevelator's response that I missed. His response is symptomatic of certain mindset - he doesn't seek to understand or know anything outside his worldview; he attacks someone in his first dialogue with that person, and that attack is at once off-point, non-responsive, not germane, as well as low-minded and divisive. In short he is a poster-boy for basement-dwelling hack.

I thought praying for someone was taking the high road.

Why would I know who John Oliver is? I watch little t.v. Some food network or hgtv to pass the time. Netflix for series and movies. HBO has only 44 million subscribers; I don't frequent Salon.com or Vox or wherever tools like JTR congregate (except here, apparently). Anyway, I know who Oliver is now, and am grateful for the responses.

Here's a quiz: Do you know who Radley Balko is? Glenn Reynolds? Iowahawk? PJ O'Rourke? Adam Corrola? Charles Krauthammer? Jim Geraghty? Not all conservatives, by the way. No hateful recriminations if you answer in the negative, either.

Re: “Lunchtime Poll: Is Outer Space the Best New Drone Metal Band?

My first reaction would be the likes of Brian Eno, Aphex Twin, Dome, Morton Feldman and other ambient, atmospherical producers, but you could've just played me the untampered recording, credit it to any of the above and i'd believe you. I'm afraid it'd make for little more than a spacey interlude or underlying layer for the quieter breaks in something as overpowering as doom metal or bombastic as dubstep.

I think an electronic/hip hop producer like Flying Lotus, Nosaj Thing, Burial, Matmos or Actress would/could slice, meld and build these into some moody, beat driven jams better than anyone. Or even some spacey touches on an Erykah Badu or Bjork track

Re: “As humanitarian crisis looms at the U.S. border, Nashville's refugee resettlement services face severe cuts

I would suggest that all of the screaming liberals put their money where their mouth is - you want the illegals here, YOU pay for 'em. Not the government. Since it is a charitable organization, you liberals need to contribute - significantly.

Re: “Can Someone Please Stop Gov. Haslam From Writing Letters?

Again, you whiny little liberals keep forgetting the key word "ILLEGAL". Just because they're kids doesn't change the fact that they're coming here illegally - and their relatives are probably here illegally as well. Go ahead, call me a 'hater' - another smokescreen term to try to always point conservatives in a negative light. I love my fellow human beings, but I'm darn tired of footing the bill via taxes for them.

Re: “Student Test Scores Limp Along

Calculators have been used for awhile, actually. They're needed for ACT and SAT, in fact.

They're not really used for arithmetic functions, but for more complicated equations, just like slide rules were used back before calculators were affordable.

I offer hardline evidence that Frank was a major catastrophe who contributed to the worldwide financial meltdown, in rebuttal you offer an opinion.

Re: “The Satanists Continue to be Among Our Greatest Patriots

You know that Satanists didn't try to use the Bible to excuse slavery.

The Southern Baptist Church is far, far more evil that the church of Satan.

Re: “Cooper Makes a Cameo in John Oliver Segment on Nukes

Here's another little known figure in the republicon epistemic bubble, in case you've never heard of him his name is Stephen Colbert and he's laughing at you. Now yoyo and his merry band of eejits have another channel to watch. Ladies and gentleman - the Sarah Palin Channel.
