Kennesaw Taylor is a newspaper columnist. This is a collection of his columns and thoughts over the past year. He intersperses humor with his keen insight into daily life. His columns bring back memories of Lewis Grizzard, an Atlanta icon.
A note from Kennesaw: I greet everyone I meet with these words. It is a joke to me, but you should see the looks I get from others. The regular people laugh at it, the ones with a little too much starch in their shorts step back and make some idiotic comment about not wanting to be near that much negativity. Get over yourself; life is supposed to be fun. This is a good way to pick who'll be sitting with you at dinner. If you don't get the title you are probably about as much fun at a party as the grim reaper.
This book is filled with my columns, the funny and the serious ones. It has a few poems, the funny ones and the Icky sicky ones. It's got some of my stuff that wouldn't get into the papers; yeah I write such stuff too. It's got a few short stories; I tend to be a little dark with those. I guess it's got all the stuff I've written over the last year, both fit and not fit for print.
You must remember that everything that comes from the mind of man isn't fit for the newspapers, so here you get a little taste of what won't make it to the newsstand. I hope this doesn't start too much crap, or maybe I hope it does. I am what I am and I write what is given me. I've had a great year, wrote a lot and prepared several books to go to print. I've been traveling all over Georgia speaking and doing book signings. Thanks to all of you that have made this the best year of my life.
