The South

I miss the South when I'm gone from it for too long.

Best Billboards on my drive from Atlanta to Florida:
  • "HELL IS REAL. Sponsored by JT Construction Co."
  • "Would you give $200,000 to Liberals?? Roy Barnes did!!"
  • "Homosexuality is an abomination. Sponsored by Bluegrass Church of God."
  • "Where's the Birth Certificate??"
I know these thoughts exist in the South, but you need to put them on BILLBOARDS, people? For realzies?

I also passed not one but 2, HUGE Confederate flags flying along the side of the road.

It's good to be back in the Southland for a while.
