Where Is Quix_Tic Two Days Before Inauguration?

2009.January.19

Birmingham, Alabama!

I’ve had a road trip to Georgia in the works since last summer and when the time came, it happened to coincide with:

a) Martin Luther King Day

b) Barack Obama’s Inauguration

c) An early stage of research for the book I conceived late last year about race, class, and the South.

So I’ll be dropping some hints and notes about the trip each day that I can, and maybe I’ll even put in some time on the topics waiting to be discussed here for future posting. Hey, it’s a time of great hope and change, right?

Topics of the day: The Free State of Van Zandt, Louisiana’s Ratification of the U.S. Constitution, Hillary Clinton’s Captain Jack Gaffe, and Lee-Jackson-King Day.

Soundtrack: Dresden Dolls, Dave Matthews Band, Crash Test Dummies, Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Vertical Horizon, Peter Gabriel, Bruce Springsteen, and Elton John.
