Johnson one of few student allies in Nashville
Wed Feb 05, 2014
Tuesday, I had the unfortunate and bizarre experience of reading Mr. Brandon Chrisman's smear piece about state Rep. Gloria Johnson, D-Knoxville, and her record.

Lindsay Lee has been making noise at UT since she got here in the fall of 2010 ...

Mon Sep 23, 2013
In response to Ms. Annie Blackwood's Sept. 20 column:
I submit this response, granted, as a man-child who has eagerly enjoyed lap dances in my life – albeit from performers with hindquarters of several orders of magnitude greater than Ms. Cyrus'.
In short, I'm in no way opposed to ...
Hidden reality exists with dining dollars
Mon Aug 26, 2013
To Whom It May Concern,
As I unpleasantly learned today, the university receives a portion of all the proceeds that come through purchases made with dining dollars at the Cumberland Avenue location of Papa Johns. The problem with this comes when I was told by the representative that I would ...
