nanny needed

I am looking for a part-time nanny in Knoxville. Hours would be 2:30 pm until 7:00 pm three to five days per week. Must be able to drive own car and have great refs and clean driving record. Competitive pay + mileage.

The job will involve picking my three school age kids up and ferrying them around to their various afterschool activities, plus hanging out with them at home. We have a pretty active family, so the person who is right for this job will need to be energetic and mature. Must like animals, including dogs and horses.

This is a great job for a college or grad student.

Email me at if you are interested or know someone who might be.

mcgreevey's resignation

I have a lot of compassion for New Jersey Governor McGreevey's apparent lifelong struggle to deny the reality that he is gay. I agree that it took courage to come out on national television and he certainly did not blame anyone else for his problems in his rather moving resignation speech.

But the issue here isn't homosexuality. It's infidelity (he's married) and dangerous political patronage in return for sex (hiring his unqualified boyfriend to head New Jersey's homeland security efforts at a salary of 110K annually).

No matter what your sexual orientation, it's wrong to cheat on your partner and children and it's wrong to betray the people who elected you by hiring people to important positions because you are sleeping with them.
