To the editor, Last week we said goodbye to a Tenn. giant, Governor Ned McWherter. It is a good time to reflect on his legacy and compare what he set out to do and what he accomplished as governor with the political perspectives and policies of the current governor, Bill Haslam.Ned McWherter talked the talk and walked the walk. When he became governor in 1987, almost half of our counties, 42 out of 95, had double-digit unemployment.
