3,600 people is a lot of people.Â Has anyone else wondered who signed that petition, and why?Â More than one source has told me that I’d be shocked at some of the names.
Now, we can all know.Â As of 5 p.m. today, there is a copy available at the Oak Ridge Public Library.
I would agree that it’s likely I’ll be surprised at some of the names.Â I would also agree that it’s likely that some of those very same folks will vote YES in the referendum.Â Especially if someone sends them the same information that convinced me and others to support the proposal.

A funny thing happened at the grocery store…
A busy Oak Ridge mother shopping with her young son at the grocery-store-which-must-not-be-named (hint: parking lot designed by a drunk monkey) had a bit of a meltdown in the long line, with a paltry three items in her cart, when an old battle-axe with a full buggy jumped ahead of her in line.
Young Mom yelled out, “THIS CITY NEEDS A TARGET!” in sheer frustration.Â The seniors glared at her, but when she reached the checkout, the cashier looked her in the eye and said, “you’re right about Target.”
Hopefully, Target will have a self-checkout so that those of us who don’t shop for the sole purpose of making long-winded conversation with the cashier, examining coupons one by one, and so forth can get what we need and get out.Â BTW, it’s wasn’t me who had the meltdown… not today, anyway.
But, I did take Gamma to JCPenney’s looking for shoes to wear with her orchestra dress, and came away empty-handed.Â Again.Â So, she’ll again wear Alpha’s narrow hand-me-downs, which hurt her wide feet.Â Fortunately, she doesn’t have to wear them for too long.
