I am a former citizen of Nashville and enjoyed the recent editorial regarding speed humps ("Of Humps and Chumps," Dec. 20). It seems Nashville is adopting speed humps to alter the behavior of citizens. Congratulations! The last place this was being implemented where I lived was Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The next progressive move for Nashville may be the requirement that females of a certain age wear the head-to-toe black abaya.

I must admit that I enjoyed your article on the controversial Christian doctrine of speaking in tongues ("What Are They Saying?" Dec. 13). After reviewing the scriptures several times on this issue, I must agree with Mr. Gregory. It is clear that when this gift is used, another must interpret it. In Paul's letters to the Corinthian churches, he even warns that noninterpreting congregations will confuse and bewilder outsiders, plus fail to edify their own members. Yes, even though Mr. Gregory may be confused in other areas of his life, he is not confused about this issue. The Born Again congregation ought to check carefully on this issue so appropriately raised by Mr. Gregory, and, of all places, in the Nashville Scene.
The real "boner" of the year goes to the Scene for missing the simple fact that Gov. Sundquist never bothered to submit a "balanced budget" for the legislature to vote on ("The Boner Awards," Dec. 13)! He's the real "boner" (and will slink from office as the most despised governor ever, which takes a lot in Tennessee), and you're just "boneheads" for not understanding that simple fact.
