Vox Populi-Something You Are Not Likely To Hear Either A Yankee Or A White Person Say

I ran into a black friend of mine today named Miriam whom I hadn't seen in awhile.

" What do you know, Miriam?" I said.

" Daddy used to say 'Not much save for Christ and Him crucified.' " she replied.

What a wonderful expression. I had never heard that before.

And I doubt that I would have ever heard it had I been situated much further North of Memphis.

The guy in the picture to the right has black friends? Oh, wait...he's probably buddies with Benson.
