I read your most recent issue "cover to cover" as soon as I saw it. I thoroughly enjoyed the articles, and especially Me and My Big Foot (http://www.SouthernReader.com/SouthRead4.3.html). I haven't heard the expression "Ah, foot!" in years, and no, never outside the South.
Excuse me, I'm going back to reading the Reader editions I have missed. Please accept my lifetime subscription.
Oh yeah love the watermelon!
Thanks much for doing this...super high-end fun and style on the South. I have taken the liberty of forwarding to friends and family. Keep up the good work!
Thanks much for the Southern Reader. I really liked David Clark's article, "The Crow Stands for Law" (http://www.SouthernReader.com/SouthRead4.7.html). It is something I believe as well, and it's not a popular view to have--whether about your own kids or about your animals or anything.
Ron Burch's forty-to-life article, "The Girl Next Door" (http://www.SouthernReader.com/SouthRead4.5.html) also was wonderful. You have a great medium, and I thank you for including me in the list.
Tell me, is your article on The Shaggs ("Philosophy of the Shaggs," http://www.SouthernReader.com/SouthRead4.4.html ) fact or fiction? It can't be fact can it? I have bookmarked Southern Reader.
When you are really in a pinch for copy, can I send you some great Tennessee legislative proposal?
