Black Mountain must have been a terrible place. People were as bad as they could possibly be. Children would slap your face. The babies cried for liquor. The birds all sang base. People even sweetened their tea with gunpowder, according to Bessie Smith. And who am I to contradict Miss Bessie Smith? I mean, she had a razor AND a gun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zATPA5le7ZQ

But Black Mountain People were total amateurs at badness, compared to folks in Canton ("The City of Lights") - a place which has been polishing its reputation for wickedness, for generations. Here's the latest: Jackson Jambalaya: Voter Fraud & Vote-Buying in Canton

And, of course, there's always something interesting going on at Canton Municipal Utilities: http://kingfish1935.blogspot.com/201...er-100000.html


Oh, and here's drone footage of the 'Lights'. There's no sound. So, may I suggest Bette Midler's 'From a Distance'? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nl83wJo--Aw

Canton. Home of purty lights to distract you from the malfeasance taking place just under the surface. It's their own fault though for voting these shysters and scoundrels into office.

The people who voted those folks AGREE with the agendas of those criminals. That's exactly what they wanted to happen (i.e. a bunch of fake votes), they just got caught.

Yep! Like I said, "from a distance...", it all looks so pretty - at night, looking down on the town square via a drone...

Ever so true. And the fun continues: now, the old Fire Chief's indicted, too. Jackson Jambalaya: 7 is not Lucky Number in Canton. One of the comments under this update, asks if there's anybody in the town who is honest. That reminded me of a line from 'Black Mountain Blues', which I neglected to paraphrase, but should have. Bessie Smith tells us that even if a jury in Black Mountain did, somehow, actually manage to convict someone, the Judge would go his bail. Sure sounds like Canton, to me.
