Today noted Georgian Truett Cathy celebrates his 90th birthday. He’s already planning the party for his 100th.
Regardless of your politics or personal belief system, Mr. Cathy is a testament to American exceptionalism.
My grandfather told me stories of buying Coca-Colas for a nickel from a young Truett outside Graybar when it was in downtown Atlanta. I met him once at the Hapeville Dwarf House when I was very young (possibly with my grandfather) and once again this past Christmas. He was then, and still is, a gracious Southern gentleman.
From small acorns mighty oaks grow.
