We attended the TDOT meeting yesterday regarding the DEIS report. There was a large turnout, with, it appeared, half of the attendees in opposition to the PPE.

Twenty citizens of the community were able to speak and give their comments as to why the PPE should not (or should) be completed. Nineteen of the twenty citizens were opposed to the completion of the PPE. The citizen speakers did a very good job, many with facts, figures, and reasonable arguments as to why the PPE should not be completed. The one gentleman who spoke as a proponent for the PPE seemed to be just giving up, if you're going to do it, just do it, he said.

Kudos to Nina Gregg for her hard work and persistence.

Thanks to you and the Mister for posting the audio of Mr. Robinson's comments, which to me were priceless. Last night, Mr. Robinson used simple math to prove to EVERYONE there that these TDOT supplied numbers are ludicrous and non-sensical. $100 Million is a number that must have been pulled from the ether. Also ridiculous to me, was that they had the price down to 4 significant digits ... how?
