John Seigenthaler will be moderating tonight’s gubernatorial forum at Middle Tennessee State University in Murphy Center. If you’ve never had the pleasure of seeing Seigenthaler in action, you really should run, not walk, to see him do his thing.

    Is it legal for a public university to exclude candidates based on their funding, or lack of same?

    Because MTSU did just that.

    Of course, they blame Farmers, but, really, the university was hosting; they could have insisted on inviting everyone.
