Forum tomorrow to discuss charter

The Knoxville-Knox County League of Women Voters tomorrow evening will host a form about the proposed amendments to the Knox County Charter that will appear on the November ballot. (No word on the city charter's proposed amendments, but considering everyone ignores the city . . . .)

The shindig kicks off at 7 p.m. in the Main Assembly room of the Deathstar.

Here's some background on the proposals right smack here.

And here's what the KNS editorial board has to say.

Obviously the two big things on the county's side (cause, again, no one cares about the city) are the pension program and term limits.

A couple folks from the Knox County Charter Review Committee, a couple of Knox County Commissioners (have they sun shined this meting yet?????) and some guy from one of those TV channels will be there to talk about this stuff.

I, however, won't be there. I'm taking a few days off. The voices are starting to speak to me again.

Huh. You'd have thought KNS woulda just kept heading in the right direction after (surprisingly) choosing to drop its penchant for endorsing Presidential races. Instead, we've got this step backward into the morass.

The job of a news organization, Mike, is to gather and present the news ONLY. Right? Or am I wrong on that?
