If it wasn't for Bluegrass, you'd nevere even know about "wifebeaters, etc." I hope that the visitors won't meet you first as the retarded, self-righteous snob ambassador of a town that has more than a few citizens trying to elevate its culture, instead of sitting on their pompous asses and repeating tired lies about it's image. Grow up and move somewhere else if you are suffering so much. I think you'd do very well in say... LA-LA land, where the fires are only outdone by the utter lack of appreciation or understanding of place. MP, please clean your house.

Written on Did a 14-Year-Old Kid Help Design the Sunsphere?:

Jack, it is better to be inside it, because it could've been really inspirational to be outside it.
Paris anyone?

I knew a World's Fair Architect with Rentenbach. The story he heard confirm's Bryce's opinion that the Sunsphere is too short. The Gatlinburg Architect Howard(?) Bleb intended it to be 3 times as tall so that it could be seen from the interstates at the edges of Knox Cty.

It was scaled down by the budget and spawned years worth of jokes about its relative proportions.
Imagine if the Eifel Tower was one third the size?

Maybe we could paint it white and interest Titleist Golf Balls in an ad to raise enough mula to fix it?

Just wish it was longer ...err Taller!
