Name:

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 www.clsnet.org 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.

What's the Frequency Kenneth?

Last night about 11pm after a day of despond I was overwhelmed with choices on the Big Screen.
Would it be Charlie Rose on Afghanistan, PBS Nova on the NSA, the final innings of the College World Series and Jackie Bradley Jr; or 30 minutes of great REM concert at Oxegen.
I parked mostly on REM. Michael Stipe was preaching the Gospel in Song and Frequency Kenneth spoke to my condition, even this late at 57 and two months.
I remembered some email exchanges I'd had with his manager Bertis Downs in 04 and the promise of those days; great panels and hope that all day long had seemed so distant and impossible now.
And they may be; but for an hour Hope lived again.
Had a sleepless night, didn't conk out till 4 am.

Sunday is July 4th.
On July 5th 1969 Janis Joplin sang at the Atlanta Pop Festival.

So Long Ago. The Corpse Bird Waits for me.

But America will struggle on.

God Bless America and its Promise; and God Bless Rock N Roll.
