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.

Barr's Big Day

I'm gonna stream some comments I've made here and there today on the dedication of the W43 Lybury in Dallas.  I was hoping to be in Gainesville Ga today for the 30th anniversary of Baptists Today. Wanted to hear Kate Campbell sing Kris Kristofferson's song about Jesus and Martin, My God They Killed him. But been a rough last 6 weeks

    So W and Barr:

Barr is stealing the day at the Library Dedication at SMU. First she tells her Granddaughters on The Today Show Jeb shouldn't run, there are other families out there that need a shot; then she gets seated beside President Obama and starts a running conversation on the dais with Barry thats driving Hardball on MSNBC goofy and got Beschloss and all the Presidential historians tryin to figure out what they're havin so much fun about. I think Barr just told Barry her Moonlightin taxidermist joke

And more facebook postings for todays blog fodder.

Good proportion on the dais: Three Democrats and Two Republicans. W in good humor and you could see the respect and admiration Laura had for President Obama as he was speaking. I am proud of W. today. The 2000 S.C. primary is still a matter of some mystery and intrigue to me, his speech at Bob Jones and Jimmy Eptein's boy at North Greenville asking W. if he had accepted Jesus as his Lord and Saviour. W. made a stop in Gaffney that year; and Bob Peeler was the first he shook hands with on the PBS documentary about the S.C. Primary
  • Bush's ambassador to Canada married a girl from Gaffney, Susan Clary. I've had an email exchange with David Wilkins this week. Still Atwater wrote that memo to the Reagan Bush committee in 84 and Karl Rove is a turd blossom. But Karl Rove knows Eric Motley by name, and Eric Motley knows two good friends ofmine by name, one a lifelong friend now on the faculty of Furman Religion Department.
  • So God Bless America.....I talked to President Carter Sept 30. Thought he did a good job too.

I liked George. I saw the Movie W. I like Laura but thought Barr stole the day early on the Today show. Chris Matthew finally cut loose about 40 minutes ago and put it all in perspective. 43 shoulda never been President but James Baker of Rice University got to Florida and made it so. I have more thoughts on my wal. Even under the circumstances it was a great day for America. Trish Nixon and the LBJ girls were there. Michelle didn't look too happy. Barr and Barry had a good chat. Weather was nice. All in all great day for America, under the circumstances.
