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.

Nick Saban at Kent State 40 yrs. ago Today

Four Dead in Ohio.

Neil Young sang about it.

How does that moment or did that moment bend Saban, the National Championship Coach for this Political Moment in Alabama as framed by the Howell Raines piece on Bear Bryant and George Wallace in the 1983 New Republic.

Is Nick any different than the Great Bear in how he can use use his political influence for Progress in Alabama.
Does he have any more savvy, motivation or conviction in that arena than Paul Bryant had?

Or Am I and such notions out to lunch?
