This may sound a bit callous or cold, but it is a harsh reality: The world doesn’t stop just because we’re staring down the barrel of a disaster.
Lots of things are going on across the state and the nation, and even though it’s hard to keep up with everything with all the flood information, but it is important.
On the bright side:
Speaking of “Don’t Say Gay”, here’s an interesting exchange between Sen. Campfield and a blogger.
On the Not so bright side:
The Tennessee Senate voted last night to approve a bill that would end collective bargaining. I’m not sure how removing a check from the system of checks and balances is going to help student achievement, and neither are several state legislators. Here’s a video from State Sen. Eric Stewart.
Sen. Lowe Finney and Rep. Craig Fitzhugh ask in the Commercial Appeal why the Haslam Administration is abandoning successful policy.
The CA editorial board also had something to say about the Anti-Shariah bill before the TNGA.
Here in Shelby County, the mediation on the Schools issue has been taken back over by the Judge. We’ll just have to see what shakes out from that development.
City Council Meeting
No mention of redistricting, which was deferred until the May 17th meeting. Maybe someone needs to go and ask them about the need for public scrutiny. Maybe I will.
The meeting starts at 3:30.
I’ll have more flood information later this afternoon. Until then, stay safe.
