I have nine acres on the interstate that has no impervious surfaces yet am billed [a stormwater user fee] quarterly. Can't get any explaination. The comment about [Metro Water Services] customer service is too nice. They are clueless.

I have continued to pay this "tax" as billed. Yet every time I send [MWS] a payment, it is charged to my residential account and I receive deliquent notices about "storm water payments." I try each quarter to rectify the situation. I have spoken with almost every account person, even the head of accounts receiving. They still haven't been able to figure it out.

Suggest you ask Water Services if the former Governor and many other
owners of vacant/unimproved acreage is paying in the same proportion
as you for this storm water fee!

This is a worthwhile "comment"?
Can't this paper just publish a "Letter to the Editor" like everyone else does?

"Dear Penthouse Forum,
My neighbor's "runoff" is getting me all wet..."

Fortunately, we renters don't have to pay the stormwater fee.

I don’t think the former governor had anything to do with this, because it was after his term in office.

Slow news day in Nashville? Drainage issues dominate the discourse?

I suggest that the complainant call his councilperson about this issue; it's gotta be some simple accounting error.

May she rest in peace, D7....she's with Michael Jackson now. Liz was great as Cleopatra....critics agreed.

Any bets on whether Gaddafi can extend the war and draw it out as one expensive, hastily conceived boondoggle? The guy has his followers, cash and plenty of cards to play....we now have us a 3-front war, in Muslim territories...the Afghanistan War is costing us 9 billion per month, according to reliable sources.....Iraq is still draining the treasury and now this. To replace the lost F-15 will cost 100-150 million alone...the Tomahawks go for 1.5 million apiece....we fired several dozen.

They claim that Hillary, Susan Rice and Samantha Powers argued for intervention, while the military men advised against it. None of the pro-intervention folks ever served in uniform, according to right-wing radio. Even the name of the operation sounds like something a coven of she-bitches would come up with. Is this simply penis envy?

The Russians are calling the Odyssey Dawn participants "crusaders"....a billion or so Muslims probably agree with that designation. Holy Wars Suck.

The Metaphor of the Dawn in The Odyssey:

Throughout Odysseus' journey, the metaphor of the dawn symbolizes his odyssey from immaturity, maturity, and fulfillment. The progression of Odysseus' development of strength is like the development of day, from dawn to dusk.

The name fits, this is an act of an immature and weak foreign policy and this is just the beginning of the day for this strange new odyssey of the mindless.

What's to follow Operation Odyssey Dawn..... Operation Oedipus Noon? This is starting to sound like a Greek tragedy....the taxpayers are assuming the position, they know the drill.

Hello... my name is Peggy.

Hello Peggy! wink wink

Capt: There was nothing said about the former Governor having a darn thing to
do with this fee or this man's problem with it. My suggestion was that he
check to see if all others with vacant lots or acreage is paying the same fee
in proportion to his. I appreciate your attention to my every word however
misguided or dismissive it might be!

Welcome to the club, govskeptic.

You don’t have to be so snooty about it govskeptic. It was a mistake on my part.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/23/11 at 12:43

Shut up yogi

Loner: We fired 150 Tomahawk missiles in one day @ $1.5 million each.
And, Obama got the Nobel Peace prize?
I want a refund.

You ask for it, dumba.. you get it. Free of charge. You've earned it.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/23/11 at 1:55

What are going to do yogi, tare up my Library Card?

BTW dumba is only an insult to your ears.

By: yogiman on 3/23/11 at 3:06

No, I won't 'tare' up your Library Card, dumba.., but I might tear it up.

And, also, no, it isn't an insult to my hearing because I don't "hear" it on this site, I read it.
