"Tennessee-style" and "Tennessee-like" are becoming standard in nomenclature that outsiders use to judge their risk of disaster. "Tennessee" and "disaster" consistently used in the same breath. Ouch. Maybe a public relations disaster is what this state needs to rouse it from inbred conservativism. Humiliation can be a powerful motivator toward progress. Is Tennessee clued in enough to be motivated away from future disasters?
