Furman Bisher finally retired. I know, many of you thought he retired during the Carter Administration. Some people say he was a good writer back when he was alive, but that means you must enjoy reading about 1) golf, 2) Georgia Tech football, and/or 3) horse racing. I'm positive the first is not a sport, and doubtful about the other two.
For many reasons, he retires overrated and unappreciated (as opposed to underappreciated). For example, Bisher is why Bear Bryant hated the City of Atlanta.
On an unrelated note, did you ever notice how much Furman Bisher looks like Jack Warden?
In his entire career, if Bisher had written an column one-tenth as entertaining as Used Cars, I might actually be sad to see him go.
Not just a movie. Cinema.
