Quote of the Day on Popular Referendums

We understand that some people [who signed Tennessee Tax Revolt's petition on property taxes] are sincerely frustrated, as are we, with some poor choices made by elected officials, but the biggest poor choice in the city in the last 20 years was the stadium [now LP Field], and that was a referendum .... We had a referendum, and every year we pay more for the stadium.

Ahh, karma. It usually comes back to haunt us, even when we think we're voting for something entirely different.
