  1. Rod - how's it going? I know, it's been a while. I just wanted to drop in and let you know that I'm back in the blogosphere again. Figured - being from the Tampa area myself and politics really beginning to heat up again - I'll jump in feet first.

    In case you haven't heard yet - the RNC convention has been delayed a day because of Isaac. Everyone is hunkered down here right now. While we aren't going to get a direct hit this time - we are expecting torrential rains - which causes a LOT of flooding here.

    Anyway - keep up great convention reporting. If I hear something in the local news regarding any of your TN delegates I'll shoot you a link

  2. Great to hear from you. Glad to hear you are still blogging. I will visit you site soon. If you see any folks from Tennessee, say hello and be kind to them. Thanks, Rod

  3. Given that I was born in Clarksville - I have a soft spot for you guys from TN.
