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.

Bama SBC, Crawford Broadcasting, and Future of Alabama

Rick and Bubba appear to me to be the biggest impediment to the candidacy of Artur Davis for Alabama's next governor and I doubt The Alabama Baptist Bob Terry nor Ex Dir Rick Lance will ever admit as much.
Birmingham Southern Proff Natalie Davis who teaches a course at Birmingham Southern on Bama Politics was spot on in an oped in yesterday's May 3, Bham News.
Here is what I said about that at Just click on the link to see if anybody picks up the discussion there

Obama's 100 days in Alabama

I think a lot is to be made of Natalie Davis classroom discussion with radio talk show host Lee Davis (click on link above) of Crawford Broadcasting.She mentioned Pam Huff, a major ABC affiliate anchor in Bama and member of same church as Rick of Rick and Bubba who is a bellwether of Bama SBC politics these days, something of a poster child for the Convention, tilting away from OBama.This column is gonna have some legs.So here is the crux of character of Alabama.Will Rick Lance and Bob Terry speak as strongly to Crawford Broadcasting as they have to the Sweet Home Alabama Plan.
Will Pam Huff read Natalie DAvis's colleague Glen Feldman on Religion in the White South in the published collection of essays by that name which also includes Billy Graham political analyst on Nixon and Race in same collection.While at Crawford, Check out The History as well as The Stand linked below:

And here is great link to Glenn Feldman's look at the way Crawford Broadcasting worked in an earlier reform movement in Alabama
It ain't hard to fill in the blanks and it ain't rocket science.

Scroll down to about page 297 for the Feldman article in this collection
Steven Miller's book on Graham and Nixon is a template for the current Gube race in Alabama with this time RickNBubba playin the Graham card of 1972.
Again it ain't rocket science to figger it out, and sad thing is Bob Terry and Rick Lance should know better.
