well, i have never eaten boiled peanuts, however, i do not like them for two reasons. first, i dislike the way they smell, and i dislike looking at them in teeth. to me, they smell salty, sulphry, dank, and all around nasty, perhaps a little bit like old garbage that has tomato ketchup cans in it. perhaps, dirty laundry or sweaty socks---sweaty sneakers or a dirty jock...oh, well.

i have a business partner who probably eats 5 lbs of boiled peanuts or so a week. when he eats them in our very small office, i must get out to surface for air. oh brother! if we are in a face to face meeting, his breath sometimes takes over, as it comes out to stand on the table. i assume it is the peanuts, at least i hope so. nonetheless, this smell would be a close second to nachos---ranch and pizza flavors. he is originally a native of jeckel island, georgia; so he will not give them up, as he is a very proud georgian. guess i'll just have to live w/ it. that is all.

Well, here's my list:

1) A large majority of the political thought that went into the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And, no, I'm not referring to the 3/5ths rule.
2) Faulkner, Welty, Percy, Chopin, Capote, Warren, and a host of other writers. The list of literary stars literally goes on and on and on and on. Heck, I am on a first-name basis with three Pulitzer winners in my city alone. No, I'm not drinking buddies with any of them. But it's kind of nice to walk into a restaurant with a client and have one of them stand and say, "Oh, hey, Chris. How's tricks?" And when I turn to introduce my client to him, say, "Meet suchandso. He won the Pulitzer for his book."
3) Blues.
4) Jazz.
5) Rock.
6) Soul.
7) Gospel.
8) Country.
9) Bluegrass.
10) Folk.
11) Our military prowess.
12) A foundational part of literary criticism and theory.
13) Barbecue. I thought I knew barbecue until I moved here. Holy cats.
14) Manners.

Because we do not have polka as our national musical genre, we owe Southerners a very large debt indeed. Having moved here from up north, I am amazed at the sheer musical virtuosity and originality of the place, because just about every American musical genre really has Southern origins. Even mid-sized Southern cities have incredible music scenes. This also translates into language as well. It might be their Scots/Irish heritage, but Southerners have this incredible gift for language and storytelling. I have sat at many a dinner table and just been transfixed by the wordplay and descriptive language.
