Not just some quick meet-and-greet, but some real, honest-to-goodness, hang-out-together time.<br><br> Well, maybe it was only four or five hours. And I really don’t think they remember when and where and why we met. But I do, and I have the pictures to prove it.<br><br> So when I heard that presidential candidate Mitt Romney wants to fire my good friend Big Bird, well, you can understand why I was so upset.<br> Mon, 08 Oct 2012 10:42:05 +0000 Dr. Larry Burriss 16498 at http://wmot.org Burriss on Media: Big Bird Political Whodunit Puts Spotlight on Williamson County http://wmot.org/post/political-whodunit-puts-spotlight-williamson-county <p>WASHINGTON (AP/WMOT) — A political whodunit has the national media focused on Williamson County.</p><p>The Secret Service was in Franklin Thursday investigating claims that someone burglarized a PricewaterhouseCoopers accounting office there&nbsp;and stole two decades' worth of presidential candidate Mitt Romney's tax returns.</p><p>Authorities are studying computer thumb drives that were delivered with an unusual demand: a $1 million payment in hard-to-trace "Bitcoin" internet currency.</p> Fri, 07 Sep 2012 11:36:38 +0000 AP/WMOT 15437 at http://wmot.org Williamson County Giving Big to Romney Campaign http://wmot.org/post/williamson-county-giving-big-romney-campaign <p>NASHVILLE, Tenn.
