As much as it pains the crew here at Rocky Top to have to say it, we took a vote amongst ourselves (it was a very close vote) and decided to offer our thanks to The Tennessean for crediting RTP with breaking the story on Beth Harwell’s “Hypocritical Privately-Funded Trip Tour.” Even though you didn’t get around to mentioning us until the umpteenth paragraph, it was still appreciated.
So to Ebert and Boucher (but not you, Plazas), it is enough for us just to know you are reading our drivel. The addition of the two of you now brings the total number of loyal readers of Rocky Top to about 5 people (give or take a few thousand).
Keep reading. Who knows — you may learn something.
