    I just stopped by to see if Grind made it through the pipeline yet.
    He might. Grind has been working hard to take Dixie’s place.

    Dixie had a true heart guided by deep loyalties that were profoundly principled due his natural tendency towards kindness. He also loved a good argument.

    He was a good ear and a solid friend- I lift a glass to your memory my friend!

    But I have to say something nice now.... I was always amazed at the quality of his fact/logic free writing.
    I see the phoney libertarian is back. You still pounding the meth?

    For many on this forum Dixie was iconic- we all recall the 1/3 controversy (for those who don't remember, Dixie took the part where 1/3 doesn't exist). In real life Dixie lived a simple life filled with friends and family who shared his love for rock-a-billy/bluegrass music.

    He was doing really well with his music these past few years. He put together a regular gig at his home referred to as the Lake House. A summer music series called “on the back deck “. It brought him endless hours of joy.

    His last night on this earth was spent with a boyhood friend talking and playing music into the wee hours. He passed unexpectedly in his sleep.

    Did we mention he was a huge Roll-Tide fan?

    Please be respectful, if you have nothing nice to say, just stay away for a bit.
    I've been meaning to get to this thread.

    I liked Dixie. I didn't know him very well, as I caught the tail end of his posting days, but I thought he was pretty solid in his views.

    And I, along with PMP, was also hoping he'd make his way back to the board.

    RIP Dixie.
