Grits and Growls is my twist on a wide range of topics using my Southern bias to give a little different perspective.

I miss Molly Ivins, who taught us that if politicians don’t want to be laughed at they should quit doing stupid stuff. I also miss Lewis Grizzard, who explained the Southern lifestyle and made it universaI for millions. I believe the world is a much more serious place now that they’re gone.

While¬†Grits and Growls’ primary focus will be on current events, politics and sports, posts on other topics will be thrown into the gumbo, even the occasional recipe.

Grits and Growls readers are encouraged to comment on the posts and the comments of others, as long as the comments are relevant and respectful. We may not always agree, but we should always be willing to talk about it.
