Love this article. Teach on.
Did you see the comments? I swear to god, I want to frame them. They’re just quintessentially everything I love/loathe about Pith comments. Shame on me for talking about unpleasant things. How dare i not also talk about the scandals of black people? My partisan jokes are inappropriate. And how dare I, as a Yankee, tell Nashville its history.
Christ. You’d think one carpet-bagging Illinoisan could talk about the sexy-sexy ways of another carpet-bagging Illinoisan without controversy, but I GUESS NOT.
It’s just shy of classic. I think you need a scolding for “writing while female” and a drive-by non sequitur before you get to yell Bingo.
Since you’re a history nerd, would love to read your take on William Walker, the “grey-eyed man of destiny.” Tennessee’s most fascinating historical figure, IMHO. They made a movie about his life starring Ed Harris, we ordered it from Netflix, unfortunately it sucked. Someone really needs to do this character’s story justice. Maybe a Broadway musical, a la “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.”
Ok, just reread the comments. BINGO!
