Thanks Randy, for providing

Thanks Randy, for providing this great blogging community. It's success is a a great tribute to your level of knowledge of many issues, local and national, and your outspokenness to voice your concerns and opinions about these issues. The fact that your topics are always of great interest, has drawn in a very diverse and highly intelligent group of bloggers... and me, who have also added to the great atmosphere of KnoxViews (excluding myself).

I wish you many more years of success!

Everyone knows this is the place to watch for local politics. Thanks for providing the forum Randy, especially in view of your somewhat sour experience as SKB.
