As good as the bbq is, nothing is as good in its culinary category as Gus's is in fried chicken.

I agree the atmosphere at the Rendezvous is great. I think Central has the best BBQ. But I agree its hard to beat Gus's. Soulfish is great, have you ever had the Memphis PO Boy? And Trolley Stop, that may be my favorite restaurant. They can't keep enough pizza's going for the demand. What's sucks is they had to take part of the market out since they have gotten so big.

I am not sure about other areas, but the Tri-Cities (Kingsport, Bristol, Johnson City) and the Nashville area have good support structures for homeschooling. Generally speaking, the state goes conservative to liberal as you go East to West.

Best of luck in your decision.

I disagree. The cities tend to be more liberal leaning, with the suburbs and rural areas being moderately to heavily conservative...statewide.

I agree. What do you think is the most liberal?

As a county, I think Davidson is more liberal than Shelby. As cities, though, I'm not totally sure. You have to take voting returns in heavily black areas with a grain of salt, because they're going to vote Democrat. How liberal of a democrat is the question.



*disclaimer - I identify myself as a moderately conservative libertarian. I have no real interest in who is really more liberal or conservative, outside of statistical curiosity.

I don't know how Knoxville stacks up compared to the other cities but its vibe has turned very liberal in the city limits in the past 7 years. I was part of a mayoral election, recently. We had a right-leaning moderate run against a liberal, a liberal that got her start fighting for farm workers' rights next to Chavez. Well, the moderate was backed by a couple of conservatives but she absolutely trounced him.

Nowadays, go downtown and the vibe, especially on Saturdays during the farmer's market but at other times as well, seems more like Asheville. It's drastically changed in the short time I have lived here. Now out in the county and beyond it is a far different story!
