On the home front there is little on the November ballot except for replacing a long entrenched retiring congressman with another two party shill.
But there is an historic referendum that would allow the first distillery in the state under a new Tennessee law for counties where there is no liquor by the drink or package stores that gives voters a say so in approving or rejecting the business.
Cannon County is a very typical bible belt area in desperate need of jobs so it's hard to tell how the vote will go. It does have a very colorful history of moonshine making and a distillery in a beautiful remote location could be a potential tourist attraction and revenue generator.
My suggestion to the Short Mountain Distillery owners was to create a niche market organic whiskey. All organic ingredients using the clean spring water in the area. It's something that is rare in the world and I feel it would be successful. The potential owner is already in the process of getting his farm organic certified.
Jack Daniels had better look out. There may be a new kid moving in.
