RIGHT BEFORE the United States of America invaded Occupied France there was a man from Nowhere, Alabama who got married to a beautiful woman, also from Nowhere. He was a coal miner, but then he enlisted in the Army. She was a junior in high school.
Sundays I sometimes drive to Rankin County. There’s this one old strip right off Commerce, what I think of as the back way, that takes you by the old places that shut down once Pearl and Madison became places people actually wanted to get to, and once the highways and the big boxes finally killed the last of the family shops.
Imagine my delight when I went home for lunch today and found a gigantic package from Prof. Fury on the doorway! Filled with . . . COMICS! Along with this gem of a dedication:
Yesterday the New York Court of Appeals, the highest appellate court in that state, rejected the arguments of forty-four same-sex couples that their state’s constitution required the recognition of same-sex marriage.
Based on a true story.
