For the record I think you are a wack job.

You sir, are an instigator. And probably a masturbator as well.
You might be surprised that there is more than one Montgomery County. Ringgold and Clarksville are in Tennessee, right smack in the middle of Montgomery County.

As as answer to a trivia question, Clarksville is on the Tennessee side of the Kentucky Tennessee border of Fort Campbell, home of the Screaming Eagles, the 101st Airborne.

How's that? The poll allows for multiple choices.

The Monkees took 'The last train to Clarksville' in 1966 so I guess public transportation is nothing to write home about. ;-)

We hired the former CEO of Lotus as the new prez and everyone expected things to go 123.

And that would have been just about the time the Louisville and Nashville Railroad stopped passenger service in that area. hummm.

Thumbs up University of Kentucky

mcbear,

I think UK has made the top 10 in several of the "Top Party Schools" surveys!

I'm "trying" to be funny, so please don't mis-understand me. As far as I'm concerned, and as you probably know by now, I live only 125 miles from Lexington and I have a lot of friends who attended college there.

It's a good school academically, and they have a helluva basketball program. Lexington is a nice town too, and so picturesque with all of the thoroughbred horse farms.

Regards,

MM
