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.

Mattie Ross, Duke and World's Olasky

Marvin Olasky interviews Stanley Fish, the NY Times columnist and former Duke English Proff, in current issue of World Magazine. Interesting interview. Sooner or later Olaskly must explain himself in regard Charles Pickering, Alliance Defense Fund, the Tea Parties, SBC and Cleon Skousen.
But until then most fascinating interview.
Fish said two of the best sentences he had come across in book and film in the last few years were from True Grit.
In the book Mattie Says: "I love the Presbyterian Church and my bank." In the movie she writes her Mother before embarking on the adventure to avenge the murder of her Father: "I'm in the hands of The Author of All things, and I have a fine horse."

I commend the delightful interview to you, but not the ideology of World Magazine.
