The 103 letter: defining Tennessee

Dear Governor Haslam:

This is my 103rd letter to you.

In the next couple of months you will have the chance to define Tennessee.  How many people do that???  I suspect not many.  Do we rise above political rhetoric?  Is Tennessee to be about Tennesseans or political divisions?  Is Tennessee for all Tennesseans or are some of us disposable?   Do we make the right thing politically reasonable or will politics define the right thing??  All these questions and more will be defined by how you deal with the issue of Tenn care expansion. 

What you do next will matter more than everything you have done up to now.  I pray you are up to it. You can’t escape it.

Until tomorrow.

Yours truly,

Larry Drain
