Good call, Ms. Bean. GOP

Good call, Ms. Bean. GOP really messed that one up. The irony is that back in the days of Audrey and the other Jenkins power members, they and a couple of party stalwarts would have paid a visit to a judge in Ray Lee's circumstance and respectfully told him to step down for the sake of the party. And it would have happened.

Mr. Irvine should now be a judge for life.

I'm the most knoxville person ever

I recall sitting at the Pres Pub having beer and singing with Ray Lee and R.B. Morris. I suppose Knoxville just became a touch more drab.

That's sad...

My condolences to his family and friends. I'm sure that he will be missed by many people. I may not have agreed with all his judicial decisions, but I am sorry he has passed. My thoughts are with his loved ones, may they find peace and comfort at this time.
