Caveat emptor: Aisle Nine does not sell cigarettes

Written on Restaurant Report: North Corner Sandwich Shop:

This place is right around the corner from my house and I love it. I hope it means our beautiful neighborhood is experiencing a renaissance.

Written on The Walnut Street Dilemma: Property Rights vs. Historic Preservation:

I am anxious to see how each City Council member votes. Most of them play it safe around powerful, rich people, like some of the St. John's members certainly are, but I expect a few of them will have to oppose demolition because of their longtime support for historic preservation. The outcome of the building will be a bellweather for Knoxville's future.

Written on The Ever-Controversial Sen. Stacey Campfield Already Has a 2014 Challenger: UT Prof Brian Stevens:

I do not think you read the article before you you wrote your flaming reply. Severance is the GOP chair, so it is not her job to find a Democrat to run against Campfield (unless you are privy to a yet-unnamed conspiracy). And a technocrat is a bureaucrat who is intensively trained in engineering, economics, or a form of technology. I don't think that description applies to Stevens, who is a statistics professor.

Just sayin.

Written on Letter: Crossword Puzzle Not Good:

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.

Written on Without Enough Policing, Sundown Series Is Too Much of a Good Thing:

I’m reminded of a quote from Alan Bennett's “The Other Country”: I saw somebody peeing in Jermyn Street the other day. I thought, is this the end of civilization as we know it? Or is it simply somebody peeing in Jermyn Street?

I agree that there should be a more visible police presence at Sundown. Mounted police offer great crowd control. Would AC and the city really foot the bill for that?
