Response to brer cat (Reply #20)

21. Remember JB Stoner? Gah. Got old and started dying

his hair orange. His horrible presidential campaign ads ran on TV in Atlanta.

Lester Maddox stopped to talk to me and my mom one morning at the original underground. He wanted to meet me - a politician's kissing baby sort of Howdo w/o the kiss. I was maybe 6 at the time. He fawned over me a minute or so while my mom stood rigid, her face set in its I don't like you smile. A smile reserved for people she had no use for - the targeted persona non grata only saw the smile and never its subtext. It wasn't lost on me.

His Underground Atlanta restaurant was a few shops down from where we were headed.

When he walked away she checked me from head to foot for I don't know what and then made me wash my hands once we reached our destination.
