State Rep. Paul Stanley of Memphis poo-pooed Representative Mike Kernell's proposal to reestablish the Tennessee Commission of Indian Affairs, which was dissolved under Governor Don Sundquist, claiming, "Now is not a good time because of the state's budget problems." Kernell believes that the commission could improve Tennessee's budget problems by pumping up its tourism industry. Everyone knows there's a veritable fortune to be made from selling plastic tomahawks and miniature dream-catchers.
