Quote of the Day

But then he got to drinking and talking to some man from the True Americans, who said maybe we ought to try out the Reverend Davis's new flock.

Daddy said no at first, because he ain't no Baptist, but this fellow (I can't think of his name, but it was Haint, or Hamp, something like that) said it didn't matter, because it was supposed to be a meeting of like-minded men, and anybody who wanted to hear the word straight from the Bible with a patriotic Southern bent ought to come on out to Chapelwood for Sunday services.
I didn't want to go, because I know what it means when somebody says "patriotic Southern." That just means it's made for angry white men, and to hell with everybody else, me included.
