Fighting Words from Tennessee

So in case you haven’t signed up for the daily yet, here’s a sample of why you should.

 

More Inflammatory Language From Tennesseans. Ron Hart, described as “Lewis Grizzard meets P.J. O’Rourke with a dash of Will Roger’s horse sense” pens a column which strangely appears in the Odessa American. Odessa, as all Georgians know, is in Texas. We’ll assume the column also appears in newspapers in Tennessee. Nevertheless, Hart has few kind words for our beloved State. Just like I meant to buy Google stock at $5 per share but did not, neither of us has a right to go back and recreate something we did not get right the first time. Maybe Georgia can use Apple Maps to help; it’s good at helping users discover new places where things aren’t. Georgia barking these threats at Tennessee is like a poodle locked in a cage yapping at you as you walk by. You pay it a little attention because you think it is cute. I have lived in both states; Tennessee is simply better run than Georgia. Tennessee is called the Volunteer State because it can’t make people live there. Politicians know that, so they make the state desirable.  The article is humorous and worth a read.  Challenge to one of Georgia’s fine columnists: pen a column answering Hart’s and defending the honor of the Peach State.

    “Challenge to one of Georgia’s fine columnists: pen a column answering Hart’s and defending the honor of the Peach State.”

    Last ones who could have done that are Celestine Sibley or Lewis Grizzard. All we have now are vanilla columnists who can interchangeably be pegged into one state or another.

    The column is actually “… is like a poodle locked in a cage yapping at you as you walk by. You pay it a little attention because you think it is cute.” No response is warranted.
