All right. We'll introduce this more formally in the morning, but for those of y'all who stay up late, The Bitter Southerner is now live. If you like us, for God's sake, tell your friends.

Smyrna (TN) by way of Nashville by way of Morehead (KY) by way of Ashland (KY, hometown). Proud to be bitter and sometimes drunk!  *Thanks for doing this.* I hope to be able to write something worth sharing with y'all, sometime.

Only one day until we launch The Bitter Southerner.

To get you in the right frame of mind, it's a good idea to revisit one of our favorite passages from Pat Conroy’s “The Prince of Tides.” 

In this scene, the character Savannah Wingo is the first person in her family to leave South Carolina and head to New York to chase a dream, specifically that of becoming a published poet. Her doomed, tragic older brother Luke is visiting from Savannah when a new issue of The New Yorker arrives containing one of her poems, the first to be published in that hallowed periodical. Then Luke reacts:

“He opened the window, crept nimbly out to the fire escape, and shouted to everyone on Grove Street, ‘My little sister’s in The New Yorker, you Yankee m****f****rs.’”

Yeah, feels right.
See you tomorrow!
