    Billy Bunday Birt has been a matter of deep fascination for me since I first became acquainted with him in the Atlanta Const stories of circa March 30 and April 1 1980. I read them in the Knoxville Tn Library, hometown of Cormac McCarthy one of the great novelist of the last half of the 20 Century for which Birt and his namesake of the great evangelist would’ve been a great muse. Billy’s baptism by his grandson in Winder in the 90s and his witness thereafter in the prison system of Georgia puts the sermons of my Baptist preacher Daddy to the test. Its all in the hands of eternity now and my condolences go to the family.
