Watching the returns from Georgia last night made me a bit homesick for my old haunts and brought back some memories. Here’s one of them: the Atlanta Rhythm Section performing “Doraville,” the name of an inner suburb where I spent an awful lot of time in a mind-numbing job. Love the tag line: “It ain’t much but it’s home.”
