What the Heckscher?

Dude with his bible in Athens, GA

I’m down south this month, mostly chilling at home in NC.  However this week I’m traveling the highways and “It’s the South Y’all- ways” of GA, SC, and North Florida (which might as well be Georgia, culturally speaking) noting a few delicious and peculiar details:

Every Southern hip hop radio station is obsessed with “Chopped and Screwed” by T Pain and Ludacris.  Rightfully so because it is truly an exemplary track of the art of, well, chopping and screwing (take that Texas/UGK/Paul Wall.)

The Bible Belt in the new south means people read the bible in hip coffee shops. And are not embarrassed to do a bible photo op.

There is a Heckscher Drive (like kosher symbol) in Jacksonville Florida.

Fried pickles are quite delicious.
