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.

State of Jones

It's a new book about Jones County, Mississippi, not the travails of my fellow Furman alum, Marc Sanford, the Governor of South Carolina.

Page 149 or 159 gets to the point in the book; though I do think the Pun may be intended when you read those pages.

Fascinating book as author Sally Jenkins broached Auburn QB Jason Campbell in her chat yesterday on NPR. I think it may have implications for Nick Saban and the candidacy of Artur Davis; then again I thought you could make political analogies about church cornerstones in Alabama, not Tehran.

But the summer heat is too strong, so why bring such things up.

Book is fascinating; at link above you can also click on the NPR Dianne Rehm show of yesterday.
