Thoughts on Georgia

Georgia is one of those states that, once you get to thinking about it, turns out to be very impressive.  Just think of all the things we've gotten from Georgia:

1.  Coca-Cola
2.  The Masters
3.  Gone with the Wind
4.  Flannery O'Connor
5.  "Georgia on my Mind"
6.  "Midnight Train to Georgia"
7.  Lewis Grizzard
8.  Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
9.  "Rainy Night in Georgia"
10.  R.E.M.

And that's just the beginning.  Truly we would all be worse off without Georgia, a very underrated state.


  1. "And with the rain delay here at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, TBS will be running 'The Andy Griffith Show.'"

  2. "You can't go to Heaven without changing planes in Atlanta."

  3. Out of the hills of Habersham
    Down the valleys of Hall
    I hurry amain to reach the plain,
    Run the rapid and leap the fall,
    Split at the rock and together again,
    Accept my bed, or narrow or wide,
    And flee from folly on every side
    With a lover's pain to attain the plain
    Far from the hills of Habersham,
    Far from the valleys of Hall.

  4. "The Empire State of the South." Henry Grady. Richard Russell.

  5. And now the 2021 and 2022 Georgia Bulldogs, who will be remembered as one of the best college football teams of all time.

  6. Accurate. This post is beautiful.

    I lived in Columbus, for a while, and I loved my time there.
