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.

Black eyed peas and tetrazini

I had the tetrazini today for lunch at the American Cafe, a strong portion.
It was pretty good no kiddin and I do recommend it to folks coming through the area.
Call ahead, 5141, cause they don't have it everyday.
If the party of the good conversation in line for the food does by chance see this, have our Auburn friend be on notice of Ron Rash's Serena due out in September.
Pat Conroy has read the galley and he is pretty impressed; singing the praises.

As for my friends who are upset, here is a good video sent in from Alaska.
Good Strong words of New Testament proportions in the Bible really does mean anything to you at all.
Bible says you cannot hate and go to heaven; anyway you read it, it says that.
It also says you can go to Hell if you want to; if you let hate overcome you or make an idol out of another human being.
Jesus is the Cornerstone or there is not one at all.
You pray about it

Here is the discussion at bl.com today.
To inverse Paul Chan, my friend Jonathan who has the Collinsville sources might say, all a little to absurd to be amusing.
Anyway my nomination for the Whitsitt award; high cotton with Governor Brewer; though in some small way I viscerally connect with the terror he felt in 1970.
I am not worthy; he is.
Who knows about Whitsitt in Collinsville? Well for one, the fellow who for a while ran the south portion of Trade Day, a shortime member of Collinsville, Baptist; he was a founding member.
But I digress:

BDiddy has written a phenomenal tribute to this year's worthy recipient of the Baptist Courage Award, an honor bestowed annually by the William H. Whitsitt Society during the national CBF General Assembly: http://www.ethicsdaily.com/article_detail.cfm?AID=10606. I'm grateful to learn more about this still-living giant of the civil rights movement.

Only in recent years has Shuttlesworth begun to receive the hard-earned but long overdue accolades from our state that he deserves. He moved to Ohio years ago and, needless to say, we weren't taught much about him (or even MLK Jr.) in the public elementary schools of Alabama.

I did have the privilege of hearing Shuttlesworth preach on a Sunday afternoon at Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham several years ago, during one of his occasional return visits to the state. That was quite a thrill.

Past recipients of the Whitsitt Courage Award include Jimmy Carter, Cecil Sherman, John Porter (our other African-American recipient from Alabama), Molly Marshall, Kenneth Chafin, Ralph Elliott, Jimmy Allen, Will Campbell, and Henlee Barnette. Others I (seriously) wouldn't mind seeing added to that list someday include former Alabama Governor Albert P. Brewer, Russell Dilday, David Currie, David Flick, and Stephen Fox. Mark

Well Whitsitt probably needs to go ahead and honor the now retired Dr. Shurden before they go and give any award to Foxy whose courage is prominently on display in the BX6400s in David Morgan's The New Crusades, page 162, first paragraph, lines 12-17.
