There is already a park nearby that commemorates Farragut. What is the significance of an engraved rock bought by a private organization and dedicated by a man who many in Knox County, when asked, would not know or would confuse with the creator of the library cataloging system? If this one rock really matters, get together and make another marker, put it in the county park, and let the inscription give the exact location of the Admiral's birthplace relative to the rock's position. Or just lie and say that the new position is the birthplace.
Sen Ramsey's quote implies that the public education of the four counties is inferior to the private education available without providing (at least without being mentioned in this column) any basis. He also overlooks his responsibility as a state senator for correcting any deficiencies in the state education system that contribute to the deficiencies he has implied. No other developed country relies on private education. They all share the same responsibility for educating their young.
