Well, I'll be damned!  maybe there is a God -- except in Tennessee.  But that's 
OK, there's something comforting in knowing that some things never change.  
Tennessee -- First in Red-Neckery!    

Great post, Steve.  Thanks for sharing it.  But be careful, though, this list 
can suck up so much time you'll find your ass mired in enjoyment.



A PARTING POEM

Whose manuscript this is I know. 
Alas, it's still not finished though,
And ne'er will be if I stay here,
These words all melt like Southern snow.
My friends must think it mighty queer
To write and write with no end near,
To write as though I could not slake
A thirst for words I love so dear.
They give their heads a woeful shake
Are glad that they're not my mistake.
They say it's time for a clean sweep:
To stop the writing.  I'm a flake!
My words are lovely, dark and deep.
And I have royalties to reap.
And I have royalties to reap.

I do love this list.  Thanks to all.  I shall return (with pipe in mouth).
