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.

Struggle for Soul of Alabama continues

I found it interesting that Judge Roy Moore would have an opinion piece in Bham News the same Day, Nov 16 Brandt Ayers would have a stellar piece in the Anniston Star:

What does that say for the direction of Collinsville, Alabama? I don't know.

I do know I invited Hugo Black's grandson Stephen to speak at Collinsville High School in April of 2006; couple months after what I consider a whitewashing got me permanently ousted from the Collinsville Public Library.
And just a month later I was voted off the property where my Mother was baptized back in 1933.
Black along with Wayne Flynt are to have a break out session when the Baptist Covenant initiative meets in Birmingham Jan 31. More than likely the librarians pastor John Morgan will not attend, though two of his children flourish in that world.
The Librarian and her sister made certain they introduced themselves to Black that day.
What these parameters mean for Annie Lucas Brown and the state Library conversations with Mart Gray and the like I don't know; hard for me to square the circle.

Good contrast in the articles. Ayers is absolutely correct. On the other hand there is Moore, who wrote: "To fill the vacuum, false prophets arose to mislead the people to believe that a biblical message of love and peace calls for pacifism, disarmament and massive redistribution of income." Where in the world did he come up with that? I thought I listened pretty good during the campaign and I don't remember a thing about such.
