Ford Resigns Senate
Senator John Ford turned in his resignation from the state Senate Saturday. In the letter, Ford said he intended to spend his time now "working to clear his name." My first thought was guaranteed that Ford was going to have a long life because the list of allegations against him just continues to grow day by day. Then, The Tennesseean reported this morning
that Ford faced the potential of being ousted from the Sentate by his collegues. So, I guess he decided to quit before he got fired. Also, reading the new allegations of bribary and corruption against Ford, it makes me think again that we've only seen the tip of the iceberg in how far his corruption and double dealing goes.Vols to host regional
The Tennessee Vols baseball team got the news yesterday
that they would play host to a regional round of the NCAA college baseball tournament this weekend. The three other teams they will face in the regional will be announced this morning. SEC teams will host three other regionals--Florida, LSU, Mississippi. Meanwhile, Vanderbilt continues to whine
about how they could be shut out of the NCAA tournament. Again--all you had to do was win ONE game to get in the SEC Tournament and pretty much seal an NCAA bid for yourselves. You couldn't do that, so quit your complaining!Lady Vol Softball Team Headed to College World Series
