The new pension plan for the Knox County Sheriff's Office is going to cost $100 million over 20 years.That doesn't seem like such a great deal to me. All we get for this are some retired deputies and a term-limited ex-sheriff. While Knox County couldn't have landed A-Rod for a measly $5 Mil per annum, we probably could have gotten Andruw Jones to bite after his sub-par season last year, if only for the security of a 20-year contract. And really, who wouldn't rather have a power hitting center fielder with mad defensive skillz than an ex-sheriff tainted by a whiff of cronyism?

Politics: Not such a great deal.
Via Les Jones, we hear of the swell new Knox Co. Sheriff's Dept. pension plan that we seem to have bought into.
