He goes to Atlanta, and stays with his one time protege, a prosperous Asian. The two go to Ponce City Market, the beltline, Buckhead, and other trendoid spots we all know and, if not love, at least tolerate. They talk about hedge funds, and their adventures in moving money without creating value. Finally, they part ways on uneasy terms. ~ I am an Atlanta native familiar with setting of this story It was fun to listen to even if a lot of it did not ring true It is ironic for a *asian*-we never learn what country-to say racism about a buckhead dive bar bless Barry’s heart both Barry investor and Barry ex potus ~ Louie Frank Powell Frank Powell owned the cove, and a series of other bars in atlanta. Once, I was perusing the legal notices, and saw where he was applying for a liquor license I saw that his first name was Louie Fory plus years later, I wondered what happened to him. I googled the name. Louie Frank Powell Birth – 23 Nov 1931 Westville, Holmes County, FL Death – 8 Mar 1996 (aged 64) Atlanta, GA Burial – Sweet Gum Head Church of Christ Cemetery Sweet Gum Head, Holmes County, FL The Sweet Gum Head was a show bar on Cheshire Bridge Road for several years.

We know that you are angry. We know that you are clever. There will be plenty of opportunities to scream racist later. ~ my next book – 12 Antidotes for Rules: A Life to Chaos ~ As the Baptist said to the Presbyterian, there’s a madness to my Methodist. ~ the moment when you see #andrewsullivan trending, and you wonder what the idiot has said now – andy says to give djt his wall it will be expensive, environmentally unsafe, and WILL NOT WORK but yea, let orange hair have his wall, paid for with money taken from healthcare it will make the liberals mad ~ those who talk the most listen the least ~ This was very frustrating to listen to. The race issue is a bottomless can of worms. The *good news* is that they did not discuss queers or life after death. This may be a first for jesus worshipers. @JemarTisby @williamrblack ~ @AryehCW Has anyone written a thinkpiece on why Italians are the only ethnicity it’s still okay to make fun of? @chamblee54 Southern White People Idk of that is an ethnicity, or a lack of one, but it is open game, especially if you throw in a kkk joke, in which case it is absolutely virtuous to insult us ~ One problem with the internet is distractions. If you see something you want to share, you will need to go share it. While you are there, inevitably you will look at facebook, thus putting your peace of mind at risk. Like when two facebook friends shared a vile screed. What is the proper response to this? Say something, and get into a quagmire argument. Or just ignore it, and lose respect for the two men who liked this. I don’t want to be someone who hates others because of their opinions. The article says you should speak up, when it suits them. The good news is, the next poem I found in the archive addresses this issue.
it is is not about justice – it is having an emotional experience
that validates your privilege – the person judging you
is just as messed up as you are – it is is not about salvation
it is having an emotional experience – that validates your privilege
