"...promoting his 19-year-old administrative assistant to city communications manager...over the more than 70 other applicants -- many of whom had bachelor's and even master's degrees, and years of experience." Absolutely shocking. Haha. I wish it was. Chattanooga doesn't care about your experience or education. Those in this city just care about who you know, what high school you went to, what church you go to, and what mountain you live on.
"effectively keep tractor-trailers in the right lane while ascending Missionary Ridge..." Wonderful idea! Fully support. In a town as small as Chattanooga it is outlandish to have the commuter nightmare that exists here. Major cities have figured out how to manage traffic ebb and flow. And yes, Chattanooga is a small town. If I have to hear one other person say it's a "big, little city" I will lose my mind. It's a small town rife with "good ole boys" corruption.
The fact that she has not been ousted from her position and run out of town speaks volumes for the corruption in this city.
Thank you TFP for bringing to light the socialist ways of those in power in Chattanooga. It's infuriating to live in a city where the government and all of their cronies think they can do better than private industry.
Happywithnewbulbs "so what if putting the wine in a store causes some other product to be moved out?" What in the world? It's called the free market. If no one wants that item the space should be used for an item people actually want. If people buy it store owners won't move it out. Period.
It's well past time for wine to be sold in grocery stores.
This is a great way to save my hard earned money during the holiday season - a time when money is already running short. Thanks TFP. I'll drive the short distance to Fort Oglethorpe to gather some of my presents this year.
