  1. You honestly make me sick.
    You tarnish a man’s memory, make light of a whole area that is impoverished without saying a damned thing about any contributions or hardships of these people.

  2. Wow, I never knew people did things like this, but I sure wish I had been there it sounds really fun and quite touching at times. A memory you’ll have in your heart forever. Great writing, and the slide show was a nice addition too. Hope I get a chance to have a trip like this someday with someone I care about, sounded like a blast. Also a nice tribute to a Music Legend.

  3. Really enjoyed the Johnny Cash article! The detailed observations about people and places, flavored with humor and a Midwestern twang, make this really entertaining and poignant. Thank you!

  4. I always wonder why some people feel a strong connection to celebrities, people they don’t know. It’s interesting that Kristi used Johnny Cash as a way to feel more connected with her father. It was a fun journey to read about. Thanks for sharing your story.

  5. BU Today – please delete the “You honestly make me” post. It is your basic flame.

    The author of the comment claim’s ” You tarnish a man’s memory, make light of a whole area”… They don’t make a single statement to support what appears to me a baseless accusation.

    The author seems to have had an expectation that this would be an article in a fan magazine about a Johnny Cash Pilgrimage or an article about the hard suffering people of the south. It wasn’t either one. It didn’t have to be either one.

    The BU Today author does not deserve to be criticized for writting a different article than this reader expected. Please delete the offensive post.
