NPR reports pound for pound, dollar for dollar, we like to spend far more than our counterparts throughout the world (and we hate to save too).

Kentucky~ A shootout in Hopkins County hospitalizes four. Apparently you can get cash for farming land that doesn’t belong to you. State Reps want Kentuckians to have a tax-free weekend next school year. The Commonwealth begins a new tourism campaign.

Tennessee~  The Arts Commission commissioned its new website (I couldn’t resist). The state is honored for financial reporting.
