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.

Mississippi and the Muslim Brotherhood

May 31 at the North End of Ft. Payne had great conversation with some young staffers for the camps up on Lookout Mtn. Summer camps. Most of them came from Mississippi, one with Ms ties but went to prep school in Memphis. I think he is going to UTenn this fall.
   He had read his Cormac McCarthy. Delightful conversation. One of them knew the Chuck Pickering family pretty well. And then it seemed at Exit 205 on 59 for a few days every body that stopped in for milk shakes had connection to Laurel Mississippi.
    Point is at some point the Alliance Defense Fund of Pickering is gonna have to define itself in regard David Barton and the chaos in Bama over APTV. Judge Roy Moore's communications director Jay Holland is a board appointee and it is a disaster.
   Word is Wake Forest's Melissa Rogers is on to it; most likely well versed in Paul Harvey's religiondispatches piece on Barton.
     Meanwhile on NPR Fresh Air David Kirkpatrick's chat about the Muslim Brotherhood coulda been a Marshall Frady report in Life Mag 1970 on the Brewer/Wallace race for Bama Governor. Google the piece and see if you don't see revenances for Bama Today, the Tea Party and the disaster at Shorter College,
   Was on hold to get on Laura Ingraham radio show yesterday morn, but she never took my call. May send a note to Mike Huckabee to get some justice as I met Mike in Ftn Inn S.C. 2009. Nice guy, but he hasn't read The Servant Economy and I doubt I will see his reply to Tom Edsall's piece in NY Times on Meritocracy Monday.
    Meanwhile Moonrise Kingdom is in the theatres, and Hope to See Beasts of the Southern Wild. Alice McDermott is Sewanee Writers conference on Monday. Doubt I see Jay Holland there.
