Re: “The Front of the Book: Sheila Barnett, Lenda Sherrell, Citizen Barrett and More

Sorry about that.

In my case, her name recognition could be improved.

Re: “By punting on its own policy, MNPS opens Metro to a likely damburst of charters

not sure about others, but i find it a bit off-putting that "students", "kids", or "children" were not mentioned once in this article. not to say that the school board has done an exceptionally good job of a child-first orientation. but what, again, is the purpose of schooling & education?

Re: “A Nashville woman battles a three-year legal ordeal — on charges of neglecting a child she didn't know

This is a good article.

I can see why people don't always trust the police or the system.

I'm sure there is another side to the story, but Barnett's involvement is so incidental and by happenstance that I'm not sure what other considerations could make me think she is at all responsible.

Re: “Can little-known Democrat Lenda Sherrell succeed where Jim Tracy failed against Scott DesJarlais?

I agree with Sherrell relative to personal decisions, but to have affairs with patients and to only receive an unprofessional conduct "slap on the hand" from the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners is unacceptable by this Board. It's an integrity hit to the medical community and clearly demonstrates this Board cannot support and police it's own. And the good doctor's reward? We elected him to congress. Apparently, a good place to be if you're void in integrity.

Re: “Don't want to go to college, eh? Here's a dirty secret — you don't have to

While I certainly don't feel as if those who don't wish to attend college should feel obligated to do so, one should be aware that there are significant benefits to doing so. One need only Google income and college graduate to quantify the economic benefits.

Anecdotally, college and graduate school were crucial to my ability to obtain and retain gainful employment for the past decade and a half. A key component of this was the development of critical thinking skills and the exposure to ideas, theories, art, culture and people I wouldn't have otherwise. These experiences have played a significant role in shaping my adult life. Certainly I'd be a very different person if I'd not spent those 6 years at university.

"We expect to be supportive across a range of activities" (to support Sherrell)

How hard can it be? Give him enough money to run a credible race.

Re: “Jamey Johnson: The Cream Interview

This is a great article that shows Jamey Johnson's individualism and his genius for his art. He is correct in that one's talent has to be from within. I have had the good fortune of seeing him in concert several times. Every time is different and leaves one with a real sense of excitement for his craft. Keep making music!

Re: “100 Percent of Students Passing Social Studies Is A Problem

Oh, I just thought my kids were really smart.

I looked at 4th grade standards (includes American Revolution) and 8th grade (includes American Revolution). Lots (and lots) of good stuff.

Re: “Can little-known Democrat Lenda Sherrell succeed where Jim Tracy failed against Scott DesJarlais?

Forrester, who has completely failed Democrats in this state, is quoted "If they really understood exactly what kind of guy Scott DesJarlais was, particularly moderate Republican women, they'd just be aghast." and "You just couldn't write a better scenario for somebody who has dirty hands, with Scott DesJarlais."

Chip Forrester would bring up an 8th grade school yard remark made by someone if he thought it would further his cause. Sherrell has it right, "You know, all of us — if we live long enough — we have some personal decisions that we've made that we regret, and I think that he has said that. I think he is interested in moving on with his life, as would any of us."

She will go further with that attitude than she possibly could with an attitude like Forrester's.

I think Tracy's biggest problem was he jumped in the race almost immediately after DesJarlais was elected to his second term and basically took the approach of 'if I'm the first and biggest challenger, then I can't not win against him.' He forgot to campaign and make himself the better candidate, and for that reason, he lost the primary.
