Knoxville is getting more influence from Asheville these days instead of Nashville. Fortunately, there are still a lot of Davey Crockett types still around. These guys looked like straight-up thugs and I'm only sorry he got just one of them.
This is the second shooting in as many days here. Yesterday we had a bad shoot, apparently a love rectangle.
