That'll teach 'em, Jim. You just shake your fist over the unfairness of it all, and all those mean old pols up there in Congress will see the error of their ways and give us the money for our courthouse. Maybe you should also form the Congressional Leaky Dam Caucus to come up with the cash to fix Center Hill Dam, another "pork-barrel project" you refused to vote for. Oh wait, Sen. Lamar Alexander took care of that one for us. Remind us again, congressman, why are you in Washington?
