Once a Capital

The grounds around the old county courthouse building downtown are full of monuments. This one reminds us that Knoxville was the original capital city when the state of Tennessee was first established. Of course, Nashville is the current capital, which is fine by me. I'm just as happy to live in a city without gaggles of politicians roaming the streets. Our local County Commission provides more than enough entertainment.

The good thing about politicians is they have expense accounts and spend a lot of our money in the local economy, especially at the bars.
