As a future denizen of Tennessee, I am happy to have made the acquaintance of one Dave Oatney, a devout Catholic who has a largely political blog, The World According to Oatney. It is proving to be an invaluable tool to learn more about politics in the Knoxville area, especially since it seems Dave and I are of the same ilk, Republicans who want the GOP to return to its standards.
I invite all to visit Dave's blog, coming forth up there in the Great Smoky Mountains, and I look forward to the day we can meet, probably over a glass of sweet tea at Cracker Barrel . . . or a whiskey on the porch!
(Hey, we're Catholics, not Baptists, okay?)
Dave, thank you for your kind posting, too! This is why I love the South.
