Goin’ to Carolina
in My Mind

From today’s New York Times:

“Bobby Frank Cherry, the former Klansman whose conviction two years ago for the church bombing that killed four black girls in Birmingham, Ala., in 1963 resolved one of the most shocking cases of the civil rights era, died yesterday at the Kilby Correctional Facility near Montgomery, Ala., a prison spokesman said. He was 74.”


The Footprints of God

(Log24.net, July 31, 2004):

“If Trinity is everything you say it is,” she said, “then why in God’s name would it be based in North Carolina?”

This I hadn’t expected.  “Aren’t you the top Jungian analyst in the world?”

“Well… one of them.”

“Why are you based in North Carolina?”


The Fiery Cross —
A Call to Arms

“The western portions of Virginia and the Carolinas, the northern portions of Georgia and Alabama, and most of Tennessee, were settled by the hardy race of Scotch-Irish, in whose veins the Scotch blood was warm.”

From the LA Times story
cited in yesterday’s entry:

“Born in Charlotte, N.C., Graham grew up in a family of Scottish Presbyterians…. Since 1950,  [he has] lived in an Appalachian log home… near Asheville, N.C.”

Today’s birthday:
Poet Allen Tate

“In the riven troughs the splayed leaves
Pile up, of nature the casual sacrament
To the seasonal eternity of death.”

Ode to the Confederate Dead


  1. I’m missing the connection. I’m missing the patterns although it is screaming somewhere in the back of my head.  Maybe I am always looking for puzzles on your page.

    I loved the footprints of god. I picked it up while on a trip to Dallas I think and I couldn’t put it down.  Of course soon thereafter I picked up a book on Quantum Physics. I’ve since put it down and dare not pick it up again. 😉

  2. Connections:

    (1) Today is the date of Lincoln’s Gettysburg address.
    (2) Today is Jodie Foster’s birthday.
         (See entry of July 31, 2004, on “Nell.”)
    (3) “It’s not what he knows. It’s what he understands.”
        — Tagline from “Little Man Tate”

    (I assume that the connection with the “fiery cross” is pretty obvious.)

  3. If you want to get rid of those jaggies, you can find a 100×181 scaled UMC logo at Graphics Library | Cross and Flame.
