Re: “Attorney Wade Joins Commission Team in Battle with County Mayor

Tennessee Atty. Gen. Herbert Slatery III recently wrote an op-ed page piece that argues against running out and filing lawsuits against drug companies in the opioid situation. He says they will draw a lot of attention but will be tied up in court for years. Slatery argues for a careful, well-planned investigation using the significant powers that the state has. I have no idea which side is correct on this issue, but the stories about the dispute between the mayor and and county commissioners outline only one side of the issue. I do believe the charter powers of who has the authority to hire lawyers and recommend lawsuits are really important issues that need to be firmly decided. Here is a link to Slatery's piece in The Tennessean:

Re: “Attorney Wade Joins Commission Team in Battle with County Mayor

How could any action against licensed dope pushers be too extensive?

They need to be rounded up, as all criminals are, charged with the poisonings they have committed, and sentenced in due process of the law.

Why anyone would want to obstruct justice being served is beyond me.

I don't care if you catch the Pope himself selling poison and calling it medicine, and I don't care if he has a stack of licenses as thick as a dictionary to do it.

It's fundamentally unjust that something an unlicensed amateur drug dealer would face a manslaughter charge for a rich doctor can get away with scot-free.

If anything, the licensed Doctors should be held to a HIGHER standard than a street dealer, because the Doctor is trained to know better.

Re: “Steve Mulroy Is Giving Away a Kidney (Really)

After watching his comments on tv news hoping Trump is in trouble. I decided Mr mulroy must be a liberal so I looked him up and them saw his bio and adventure spirit and kidney donation and got a different picture. My late husband also from TN was a skydiver and a trekker, climbed on the grand Teton WY on honeymoon. He was also a private pilot, a chemist and much more. I remain an IKE republican, however.

This man is impressive and I wish him well.

Frank,
Whatcha waitin' for, sperm on a dress?
Just because a house is on fire doesn't mean you should ignore the tornado coming down the street.

Re: “Cohen, 5 House Colleagues Launch Impeachment Effort Against Trump

Everyone knows that Trump has his problems; but, instead of grandstanding, I wish my Congressman would spend his time helping to solve the problems our community faces. Drugs, crime, education, poverty, etc.

Re: “Chancellor Kyle Splits the Baby in the Opioid-Suit Dispute

Gosh, we've mentioned all these politicians, yet we haven't mentioned the name of a single doctor with blood on his hands.

Name them.

Name the doctors who caused this crisis, charge them with the murders they have committed, and send them to general population in prison.

No more delays.
