    I read this just enough years late to see how conservative he was. His take on things not political are still very humorous and fun but I wonder would I still be reading his column were he writing today

    Reading Lewis Grizzard will make you laugh so hard it hurts. And then losing Lewis too early and sharing that loss with those who knew and loved him will make you cry so hard it hurts. When I got to eat at Lewis' favorite BBQ joint in Atlanta, I almost cried.

    Good sampling of some of the columns he wrote in his last few years of life. He oftentimes examined his life as I believe he felt like his end was near. Always a great read if written by LG. He had a way of writing nostalgia that left you hungry for another time and another place. The tribute pieces written by friends and colleagues in the front were also very good reads about, arguably, my favorite Southern humorist ever.

    Wow! Every time I read this, I laugh and cry and just marvel at the wit and humor of the late Lewis Grizzard!! He is quite possibly the best newspaper columnist EVER! This go around when I read it, I couldn't help but think what great material Grizzard would have in this day and time with the crazy way the world has gone given his quickness to talk about his love of all things Southern and his disgust of all things Atheist, Liberal, and political correctness. He could have a field day! Some of h Wow! Every time I read this, I laugh and cry and just marvel at the wit and humor of the late Lewis Grizzard!!

Good ol' Grizzard would have said what he thought and dared someone to approach him about it. Great guy who is greatly missed!

    This was Lewis Grizzard's last book, published posthumously. This commemorative edition has a section of essays/letters/eulogies written by friends of Grizzard at the beginning. For me, once I got past that section and into Grizzard's actual columns, the book got much better. I was particularly amused by the fact that some of his columns from the early 1990's covered things that are happening today. I guess it just goes to show how things have a way of coming back around.

I think people who enjoy Dave Barry would also enjoy Lewis Grizzard. Grizzard is a little more conservative, but still funny nevertheless.

    I thought I'd get a lot of laughs out of this book because Grizzard made me laugh when I was in my teens. I wonder, if he'd lived, if I'd have still laughed at his columns. Andy Rooney used to make me smile because he was sort of like a curmudgeonly old relative. Would Grizzard have become the same sort of writer? There were a couple columns that were still funny. I really didn't like all the introductory columns from other writers about how they felt about Grizzard.

    It's been quite a while since I read a Lewis Grizzard book and it occurred to me about a chapter into this book that ol' Lewis and I sit on very opposite ends of the political spectrum and I just didn't enjoy this like I thought I would. I still think he was a funny writer, but I couldn't get past the major issues I had with some of his views.

    https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... I wasn't sure how to shelve this one. The different columns mentions several different states, but they weren't necessarily the focus of what was being discussed. I settled on Georgia because that is the author's home and it is mentioned the most. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... I wasn't sure how to shelve this one.

    Very entertaining and well written. Wish I had read his columns when he was alive.

    This one was written before his last surgery. He was reasonably sure he wasn't going to make it through it. He didn't. Humorous to the end I miss his attitude and view of life.

    Love him. He makes me laugh so hard I can't tell others why I am laughing, I just shove the book in front of them and point.

    I edited this book after Grizzard died. He and I were colleagues at The Atlanta Journal Constitution.
