1. Can someone explain to me why Robert Johnson has the ability to make Alabamans proud? Is he just that powerful? Did Mississippi annex Alabama over the weekend? I tease, but folks, if you want people living in the South to take your concerns about the goings on in the South, it helps if you seem like you have some basic cultural literacy. Ascribing Robert Johnson to Alabama signals to your readers that you don’t know what you’re talking about. And thus the main point you’re making is already suspect, when it shouldn’t be.
2. I’m thinking of doing casual reviews of all the parks in Davidson County. That might be too ambitious, but I really enjoyed writing this one for Pith.
