"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

The Road

Have you ever read this?
I'm not generally a fan of Cormac McCarthy, but this novel is fantastic.
The movie is positively excellent as well.
I recommend it (even if you don't like McCarthy).

I thought the book was okay. I found it hard to put down, but there were times that the writing took me out of the story. The premise was compelling and the world McCarthy created was engrossing.
