A Cartoon-Loving Cartel

A series of public suggestions for civic improvement

"What Knoxville needs is more grownups who aren't embarrassed to admit they still enjoy cartoons. Hell, every place needs that. It's not deep, philosophical, or political, but neither am I. People, grownups—whatever that means—who love cartoons are free from society's pretentious chains. They are true. They love to laugh with child-like abandon. They remember what it's like to be small. They are brave, and they take every opportunity to smile. What town doesn't need courageous souls like that?"

—Shannon Farabow, a "true" dork who particularly loves old King of the Hill episodes, and still watches Hey Arnold! and Adventure Time
