How not to hold a press conference

    Michael Dinwiddle, mayor of Spring Hill, Tenn., likes to hold press conferences with anyone who has any crazy plan.

    This one includes a $750 million resort that could host an NBA team.

    I've got some crazy plans. Maybe he'll fly me down and throw me a press conference.

    Here's a crazy idea: Finish building the fucking I-840.

    Well he's got the name in place the Spring Hill Saturns...pick-up the old Frankfurt Galaxy logo and colors and this team is off and running...perhaps a UFL franchise would be a better fit...my press conference announcing this idea will be held at 10 a.m. EST Thursday to be followed by 18-holes on the golf course :)

    Holy crap. I was looking at the population numbers of that city and it went from around 7,500 in 2000 to over 23,000 in 2007. That can't be sustainable with the Saturn plant idled.

    I'd be scared to death running for office with the name Dinwiddle. Critics wouldn't even have to think of names to call me. It stands on its own as a derivative of dimwit.

    Don't rule out U.S. auto plants retooling and taking on some work the Japanese had been doing.

    I'm sure loosing the Saturn plant hurt bad, but Spring Hill is part of the Nashville metro which otherwise is holding its own in the current economy, if not exactly kicking ass.

    Williamson County (which includes Spring Hill) had the lowest unemployment in the state in January, the last month I saw numbers available -- 6.7 percent.
