I don't know how many of you have noticed but the Roane County News has pretty much a nonexistent coverage of our TN State Legislators. We try to hit the high spots and cover the more egregious transgressions of our elected officials but there are a lot of bills pushed by a lot of lobbyists and it's tough to read them all. For years we have relied on the best newsman (We have news Women of note as well) in our state to point out targets for our outrage, and to say the TN Legislature is a target rich environment is understating it a bit.

Tom Humphrey is the go to journalist to keep Tennessee citizens alert to what is happening in Nashville. Saint Thomas is now linked in our "Eco Warriors and Politics" news feed over on the right. I strongly suggest you make Tom H a daily read. Even though Tom is officially retired he still has the best legislative digest in Tennessee.

And thanks to our chief elf, Randy Neal from over at KnoxViews.com, in doing the grunt work to make it happen.
