Just got back to this thread - LOL Spaw, you're killin' me! Glad to know I live so close to the home of Big Bird's ancestors. By the way, I have seen funny looking buzzards in that same area, no joke. It's right near where there are signs along the highway warning you to not walk in the woods or fields. Not to worry. If the buzzards look funny, reckon what the coyotes and raccoons look like?
I agree that "lost his leverage" makes no sense, it's just how I heard it. Probably whoever made that change also misunderstood Lynchburg, did a 180 with the whole thing and made Danville the destination.
