The outside in

On rare occasions where they finish in the money, I give anonymous and pseudonymous commenters their due. These points are too good to pass up without passing on:
Karl Dean ... is more focused on what outsiders think of Nashville, himself being an outsider.

We have a convention center for outsiders; are giving away $59 million in TIF funding for an outsider to build a hotel for outsiders; we are getting rid of Nashville small businesses at the flea market so we can build an office building for outsiders; we are getting rid of the racetrack because enough outsiders don’t use it; and now we are even retro-fitting the IBD formulas to “attract” (read: give tax dollars away to entice) more outsiders.
