Word on the street is that Gerald Largen's column will be in Friday's Roane County News.

Yes, THAT one. I figure a week of aging has it at the peak of drinkability.

Works for Moonshine, doesn't it?

Nobody has to tiptoe around

Nobody has to tiptoe around Gerald Largen. He's extremely friendly and incredibly knowlegeable about this area and the history of Roane County and it's government. I've even found him open to disagreement and contradiction, but you'd better have your facts straight. He doesn't seem to much like dishonesty though.

After I toured the historic Courtroom in the Old Courthouse in Kingston, I was fascinated by it. It's small but ornate and arranged more as a theater than the production offices that pass as courtrooms today. I asked Gerald what it was like to practice law in it and he laughed and gave me a one word reply..."Primitive" was all he would say.

A note from the Proprietor...

Ads for other web sites are inappropriate here.

What we are looking for at is discussion based on facts and reason based opinions, and while references are fine and encouraged in the form of links and excerpts with some comment.

Simply telling folks to go somewhere else is discouraged for what I would think are obvious reasons.

This is not to be considered a reflection on other sites. is very supportive of all forms and venues of rational discourse and openness in the hope that somehow we can help the quality of our lives in Roane County.
