Longtime friend Tony Barnhart of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution recently took a detour from college football to blog about another Southern staple, barbecue.
From now on, my media blogging will roost at the “human clipping service” blog. So I’ve been dubbed, after my daily habit of e-mailing news items all over the globe.
I’ll also return here to deal with non-media issues, such as grits vs. guacamole, Herschel Walker vs. Marcus Allen, and other items stemming from my bicoastal background. Living in two virtual worlds will be fun.
I didn’t need much of an excuse to pull for UCLA in this weekend’s Final Four matchups. I’m a former Southern California resident who still misses that great weather, and my Miracle Georgia Dawgs succumbed to reality in the first round vs. Xavier.
This week marks the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., so naturally, Atlanta is awash in events honoring its famous, crusading son.
Another baseball season is here. I’m hoping my hometown Atlanta Braves get back into the division title habit. But that seems selfish and trivial in light of some more historical developments.
