I'm in mourning! Tom Humphrey's state political blog is being terminated by the folks who own the Knoxville News Sentinel, Gannett Publications. They aren't from around here and they don't particularly care if Tennesseans know what is going on in their state Legislature. They have now bought every major newspaper in Tennessee except for the Chattanooga Times Free Press. I think their motto is...

"All the News We Want You to Know"

I have repeatedly called Tom Humphrey a Tennessee Treasure. I think the official reason he is leaving is to spend more time with his fishing gear. I wish him the best, because he is and he deserves it.
