    The Water in Hamilton, AL ???

    Anyone suspect anything after the many people that have been interviewed over the past week?

    Being from Alabama myself, I think these people from Hamilton (with the exception of JK, of course) are just typical small-town folks from the south. Don't let their drawl fool you--they can be shrewd. They may lack sophistication, but don't underestimate them.

    I hope the town can at least cash in on this, since they could use a Krispy Kreme.

    Small southern towns have their own charm. They are not for everybody, of course. You won't find Krispy Kreme or a fast food place there. You'll find a decent cafe that serves a meat-and-three with coffee and a smile (for a very reasonable price!) Again, don't assume these people are ignorant. They may be stuck in a time warp, but that's where they want to be....

    southerngirl....what's a meat-and-three?

    Being a native San Diegan, I would love to live in a small southern town.

    It's a meat (fried chicken, meatloaf, country fried steak, etc.) and a choice of three vegetables ( maybe fried corn, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, etc.) and cornbread, of course. And don't forget the sweet tea, a must in the south. The diners have formica tables and a counter with vinyl-seated stools. The working class love to congregate in these diners and talk weather, politics, local gossip, etc. They are southern institutions and you'll find them all over the south, along with a multitude of churches, another VERY important part of life in the south!

    Come visit! You'll learn about southern hospitality!

    I'm hungry now......

    I suppose, since JMK is a good example, when you speak of wanting to be where they are.

    But I get the feeling that these people are trapped in some other warp, besides a time warp.

    Somethings cannot be explained as clearly as they speak for themselves. The interviews are stunning to me. It was like the guy was cult leader driving a red sports car around town. They have JMK as being one of the smartest, most musically talented, and most handsome people from their recollections. But, they follow that up with him being practically the wierdest person they knew.

    Seems like JMK cast a spell on that vulnerable town.

    Could be, and good thinking in making that connection. Sweet tea is VERY big here.

    Amen! Learn to love GRITS...Girls Raised In The South. We make talk slow, move slow, and appear that we have no clue. But I assure you, Southerners just take their time in analyzing things; we've got what my Mama always called "Horse Sense".
    I'm as proud as a peacock to be from the south, Tennessee rocks. And I rock it out "Little Lot" style. How's that for the name of a Southern town?
    And BTW, I work at one of the most well known Southern Universities/Medical Centers in the entire world. Trust me, I ain't no dummy! Ha! Ha!
