Politics often inspire our nation's kooks to disseminate their loopy theories, and Knoxville's kook contingent is no exception--especially as the local primaries loom. (Go vote on Tuesday!)
We've received a couple of reports about a person (one Facebook writer described him as "an elderly gentleman driving Buick") distributing copies of Metro Pulse along with an anti-Madeline Rogero flier. Why steal and then give away free copies of Metro Pulse along with your political screed? We've never understood this bit of would-be trickery, which has happened repeatedly over the years. Maybe the culprits think they'll "fool" people into believing it's from us?
Well, we certainly hope that no one assumes we wrote this one--simply because it's so disjointed and error-filled that we hate to think anyone would believe we could produce such a pathetic bit of propaganda. (Our propaganda is much sneakier, polished, and accurate.) The title alone should clue you in that this is a letter direct from loopy land:
A PROFILE OF WHAT HAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE IN KNOXVILLE.
PROFILING ALSO OF WHAT WILL TAKE PLACE LATER IN THE SHADE
AT A LATER TIME AFTER THE ELECTION.
SHADE IN THE CITY OF KNOXVILLE
(Yes! This is the voice of reason Knoxvillians must follow to make well-informed choices in tomorrow's election!)
Anyway, if you find one of these sheets in a Metro Pulse, read it for your own amusement. And then vote for the candidates you feel most confident in, based on their own stands on local issues. (Here are our recommendations.)
