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.

Burma; the Morgans and the OTMtn Dems

Update October 3. Got an email today with an entreaty for people of conscience to stand with the Burmese

Original blog

I had made a pledge to myself to give the Collinsville John Morgans some slack cause I think they are good people at heart, even though none of us may ever know this side of heaven what role some of them played in me sliding off the Hill, the premises of Collinsville Bap Church where my Mother was Baptized.
I don't feel like I'm pickin on the preacher here, even though my friend Johnny Pierce has explored the generic and high maintenance church members at a recent blog at
Far as I know the Morgans continue to be annual subscribers of Baps Today and in years past have occasionally share a copy with me. I got my own now, but I do appreciate them sharing in the down years. I was just hoping somewhere there in the 90's or early oughts they woulda led the church to become group subscribers.
And some of them still let me play volleyball if I show up offisite church property, though they don't call and tell me when they're playing like they used to.
All that to say rare opportunity coming up Monday for family members of progressive Christians with ties to the berg--that would be Matthew Morgan, JEMIII and his lovely wife SWM--to join this discussion; or at least get a copy of the DVD for purposes of regional discussion maybe at the UMC. Far as I know I can set foot in there.

There's the link. I have to believe were Matt and JEMIII in town they would join me for the dialogue.

Sfox, languishing but still breathing with a slight pulse.
