  1. Awesome, Dr. Tona! I like the sound of “John Jay.” Sounds familiar to one of my favorite East TN politician’s names: John Jay Hooker.

    You’ll do us awesome, Dr. Tona! That semi-circle’s gonna feel awfully empty without ya, but I know you’ve got yer sites on grander thangs!

  2. Thanks everyone.

    Libruhl, I had the opportunity to meet John Jay Hooker twice. He was a wonderful man who fought the good fight for freedom. He was right on Amendment 2. Wish more people had listened to him but the opposition was well funded and we now have Soviet style judicial elections for the appeals and supreme court. People need to look beyond the money and demagoguery and study the issues.

    Let freedom ring!
