Born May 18, 1953; got saved at Truett Memorial BC in Hayesville, NC 1959. On rigged ballot which I did not rig got Most Intellectual class of 71, Gaffney High School. Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking. Had a Pakistani Jr. Davis Cupper on the Ropes the summer of 84, City Courts, Rome Georgia I've a baby sitter, watched peoples homes while they were away on Vacation. Freelance writer, local consultant, screenwriter, and the best damn substitute teacher of Floyd County Georgia in mid 80's according to an anonymous kid passed me on main street a few years later when I went back to get a sandwich at Schroeders. Had some good moments in Collinsville as well. Ask Casey Mattox at if he will be honest about it. I try my best to make it to Bridges BBQ in Shelby NC at least four times a year.

George Wallace, Jr.: Marsha Duel, and John Killian

Gonna be brief on this one and come back to it, so all of you who take an interest on first reading, come back and see how it develops.
Called a neighbor this morning and let her know I may start something on the subject, so did not want to disappoint her.
I voted for G Jr. in the Lt. Gov GOP Primary runoff last Tuesday. He got beat, could be the final nail on the coffin of a dynasty here in Alabama. My fundamentalist friend John Killian of Maytown Alabama endorsed Wallace, Jr and I was encouraged to hear George was for Constitutional Reform. I probably woulda voted for Folsom in the General this fall against Jr. had he won, and I for sure will now against Strange.
What I want my neighbor Duel, who was raised bout half mile from my house and married well and went to Mtn Brook; and Killian distant kin of former mayor of Collinsville, Boston Killian (love that name though he probably opposed my grandfather Jordan's politics in his day, nineteen teens), what I want them to do is read the 20 odd pages on the Southern Baptist Convention as the state church of the Ex Confederacy, read the footnotes and recommended readings in the book, and see if they don't see a novel of some sort in themselves and their fascination with the Wallaces. And for sure they both should have already read Dan Carter's definitive bio of the Dad, the Governor.
Go from there and maybe next time Marsha is up, if she gives me advanced notice, Killian can drive up as well and we can chat at the China House. Valerie you are welcome, but the less you say, the more substantive the conversation will be.
Oh, in my picture on this blog, one of the other folks is kin to a former member of the Wallace Administration. See if you can guess that person.
