From The Atlanta Journal Constitution comes a reader poll that “Asked to name the 100 most influential Southerners of the past century, more than 3,700 Atlanta Journal-Constitution readers responded.”
Very interesting… A couple points:
(1) Weren’t the Wright brothers originally from the North?
(2) Any list that lists Ted Turner in the Top 5 is bound to shed negative light somewhere…
(3) Jackie Robinson is WAY LOW on this list!
(4) Ty Cobb (a racist) tied with B.B. King in the voting is unintentional hilarity!
