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.

An Exquisite and Substantive Memory of Paul "Bear" Bryant

Make sure it registers with you this Howell Raines Piece was written in 1983

I heard Raines speak at Samford back about 1993 in the presence of JFK Profiles in Courage Winner Carl Elliot.
It would be grand indeed if every school child in Alabama knew as much about Carl Elliot, Gov. Brewer and Judge Frank Johnson as they do about Paul Bryant; but that may be asking too much.
Still Raines does a grand job here and I thought I would share.
