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.

And What Does Casey Mattox think......

About this one.

Fascinating discussion up today in the Washington Post about God's Harvard, the Patrick Henry School in upper Virginia. Hanna Rosin of the Wash Post has written a book about this staging ground for committed young Christian who want to change the course of America.
Casey is at .
I am still trying to figure out how much of an influence the controversial Francis Schaeffer through the influence of his hometown pastor John Morgan had on Casey.
It seems the Pastor's son Matthew of Yale Div found a "more excellent way". Not picking on the preacher as warns against, just some sincere and significant questions for the direction of the church where my Mother was Baptized, now that I am outside the gates. For sure dissent is not smiled on there. Whether that is part of Schaeffer and Mattox's legacy, well I guess that is up for discussion as well.
Hope to have a link for you soon, but you serious students of my illustrious blog here should have no trouble googling up the Wash Post chat in the meantime.
