Dear Governor Haslam:
This is my second 94th letter to you.
It occurs to me you are on vacation. Between now and the election I wonder if you do not have at least a little bit of a free ride. I think the votes to extend Tenn Care are close to being there if not already. But until they are elected moderate republicans answer to you. They cant afford to have you or the Tea Party come out against them. But after the election they must answer to the people in their district and even more importantly to their conscience. And talking to the people who talk to them their conscience is going to give them problems. Decent people dont like to be a party to the death or destruction of others, particularly when those others only crimes are to be poor and to be sick. I wonder if you will not begin to have a lot of them begin to ask you about the state of your conscience.
I dont think it will get cold in October and November. I think it will get hot. Really, really hot.
Enjoy it while you can. Vacations dont last forever.
