83. Why I Wrote 'Nathan Bedford Forrest’s Redemption' -

Nathan Bedford Forrest recently made the news again, but it is never for a good reason. Rep. Mike Sparks of Smyrna introduced a House Resolution (HR 97) to honor me, and shortly thereafter Forrest made the news. Some might wonder why I would write a book praising Forrest.

89. Last Word: The Catechism of 1968, Downtown Hotels and Earth Day on Auto Row -

For just about half a century now we have thought and thought again about that chronology, reviewed the details. And what we have is a sort of catechism of moments that if they had happened differently, we can’t help thinking, might have produced a different result.
