Start of something great

Posted Wednesday, August 1, 2007, at 10:04 AM

When I started at the T-G in the 1970s, if someone from the future could have hollered back and told me, "You'll have a blog!" I would have thought "blog" was some type of health problem.

Times have definitely changed for the better. Now everyone has an electronic voice.

Multiple T-G staff members and community bloggers all have something to say here. Spend a few minutes with us each day -- and leave your comments. They're equally as important as anything we'll write.

Building an image: Nashville now has a steel sculpture downtown which somewhat resembles a red roller coaster.

It's art, some area artists claim. And at a cost of $330,000 to taxpayers, let's hope someone appreciates it.

"Cities that invest in art and culture are the ones that have bigger business, banking and other kinds of industries," Terry Thacker, who chairs the fine art department at Watkins College of Art & Design, told the Associated Press.

If Bedford County and Shelbyville had an official sculpture, what would it be? A statue of a Tennessee Walking Horse rider triumphantly holding a pencil or Sharpie in one hand?

Use your imagination and let's come up with something wild.
