Guest Blogged by John Gideon of Today we have four "Featured" articles. These four were selected together because they were all in the "Tennessean" newspaper; one of the largest newspapers in the state of Tennessee. These four articles are all found in the 'Opinion' pages and were written by the state's coordinator of elections, a member of the advocacy community, the mayor of Shelby Co Tennessee, and the newspapers editorial staff.
