Senate 29 residents, I have a question for you.

Les Smith of Fox 13 has an interesting story up about former State Senator John Ford, who went to prison after being convicted of charges related to Operation Tennessee Waltz.  Ford was recently released from prison, and it is not known whether Ford, in the process of having his rights restored, could serve again in the Tennessee General Assembly.

Given the antics of his sister, Ophelia, with her repeated illnesses and actions as the Senator who replaced her brother, I have a question for you:  If you COULD have John or Ophelia as your Senator, whom would you choose?

John Ford, for all his faults, was one of the most effective legislators I have ever seen, and if you don't believe me, ask the Mayors, City and County, who depended upon him to lead their legislation in Nashville.  Obviously, in the current GOP-dominated legislature, even John Ford would have difficulties, but whom would you choose?  I will put up a poll in the sidebar!
