Letter to the Editor

The average population of a congressional district will be [with new U.S. Census Bureau numbers] 710,767, compared with 646,942 in 2000.

This puts Tennessee at a 8.9285 ratio for districts. The previous census ratio in 2000 had Tennessee at 8.7941.

Tennessee is a long way from gaining that 10th [Congressional] seat. We were about 406,100 short of picking it up this time around. Tennessee needed a growth rate of 18.68 percent to reach the 10th representative.

Good morning, Nashville!

I hope that everyone survived Christmas and is prepared to party on New Year's Eve.

I'm posting this from my motel room on Sunday morning......I'm about 4 hours away from home, I'm in Canfield, Ohio. A big storm is brewing, so I'm going to head back early. I had a great time.....but, it's time to check out.

Looking forward to a fresh LTE on Monday......see ya!

I hope everyone on this site had a very merry and happy Christmas. The New Year is about to begin so we now have a full year now to argue over articles before we must wish each other a Happy Christmas again.

I'll start by saying I hope each of you have a great New Year!
