Congrats to Mark Padgett. (Just this once.)

For all the crap I give Knoxville mayoral candidate Mark Padgett, I think it's only fair to congratulate him on the birth of his son.

According to his spinstress Laura "I once worked for Arnold" Braden, Katie Padgett gave birth Friday to William Pierce. The little bugger weighs 7 pounds 14 ounces and is 21 inches long. Apparently, the Padgett family (going back many generations and way before Mark got his idea to start an online company by snagging it from his former boss) has a tradition to name the first boy William.

Of course, at Screams From Da Porch, we honor no traditions. So, his new Delta Tau Chi name is: BILLY!

In all seriousness, congratulations, Mark. (And good thing he wasn't born on a Wednesday, cause that would give your opponent some ammunition. Heh.)
