Our Tie-In With Grace Moore - And Response

I  enjoyed Chester Martin's article on the Grace Moore era. My parents had a house on Lookout Mountain near Covenant College that was next door to the Moore's house, and much of Grace's furniture was stored in the attic.

Roy Exum: Our Double Travesties

Back when we were kids the old guys taught us how to throw a one-two punch. It’s pretty impressive if you do it right, which is to jab your left fist into the thug’s face and then, as though it was a symphony, complete the combination as you deliver a powerful right cross to the same nose. If the thug has a gun, it doesn’t work as well. But, boy, did our community ever get clobbered ... (click for more)
