“One Man’s Opinion”
Part I
Happy New Year to our Advertisers and Readers! I just wanted to
remind you of the various ways you can access the HOT SPOT in
case you missed the printed magazine. You can always go to our
website, and see the current and
past issues along with our videos, links to our advertiser’s websites and email along with useful and
fun websites and WHOT and WGFM Internet Radio Stations. We also have the current and past
issues on for, just search on The Hot Spot”. We also have a channel on Youtube,
which features our videos from functions and clubs around town. We’re listed as “SavHotSpot”.
We’re looking for other sites to exchange links with as to make it easier to find the latest issue. If
you’re interested in exchanging links with us, email me at:
In addition, if your business does not have a website and you need a web presence, you may
purchase a page or two on our site for a small design and even smaller monthly fee.

Part II
Joan was telling me about shopping for a Play Yard for the new grand baby. I had to ask what was a
Play Yard? She told me, they used to be called Playpens. I went online and looked at some pictures.
The Play Yards are lightweight, collapsible with netting. I guess they are an improvement on the old
Playpens which had bars and a padded floor. But why change the name? Play Yard, Playpen,
they’re still the same. Why don’t they just call it like it is, Baby Jail.

Part III
Well the freeze finally killed off most of the Gilliard Farm. Up until this last cold snap, we were still
getting bell peppers from about five plants. The only thing left are the collards and cabbages. We
pulled everything else up and turned the soil, giving it a rest for a while. I also turned the compost
heaps I have out back and the secret ones in the woods behind the house. I’ve been pricing tillers
and cultivators and can’t wait to start growing new plants from seeds in a few weeks. Yes, I’m a
gentleman farmer in my old age, because there’s nothing better than going out in the back yard,
pulling up some onions, picking some tomatoes & cucumbers and cutting some lettuce for the
world’s greatest salad. Don’t get me started about the squash and okra and on and on. I can’t wait.

Just, One Man’s Opinion.

I am a professor at Savannah State University.

Recently on one of my visits to a “Hot Spot” location,
I ran into a couple of my sociology students. When
we returned to class the following day, the students
wanted to talk about their experience at the particular
location. The students decided to pull up archive is-
sues of your magazine. Initially the students wanted to
laugh but I reminded them that we are in a sociology class and that in order to be
good sociologist that they must use their sociological imaginations when making
inferences about any patterns.

We began to analyze the various pictures and videos on your website. We were able
to conclude that there are consequences to the service you provide. Most of us think
of consequences are negative, which is simply not the case. We went back to our
introductory course information and determined that there are latent and manifest
functions or your service. Manifest functions are the intended consequences of any
social pattern and the latent are the unintended. We focused on the unintended

be photographed and printed in a bi-weekly publication for all of their peers to see. It
suggests a degree of increased social status that in practically every other social
arena they would go un-noticed. Everyone likes to feel respected and most people
identify high status commands respect. By being able to let everyone view them in a
publication that affords the opportunity for a large population to see in a way creates
a higher status.

In the past, our people have received their status in the church, by holding officer
positions that would allow them to be noticed as well. But as we all know everyone
can’t hold officer positions but everyone has the same opportunity to be a part of the
photo gallery in The Hot Spot Magazine. I wanted to formally thank you for assisting
me adding an applied component to my lectures. Being able to witness what the text-
books record is teaching at it best. Thank you for the service you provide, not just
academically but for providing a medium for our people to shine.

Clever Scam
Taking Advantage of Older Men
Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in dark
parking lots, etc. This is the first warning I have seen for men. I wanted to pass it
on in case you haven't heard about it. This will only become more commonplace as
the weather warms in the spring.

A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular Lowe’s or Home Depot customers.
This one caught me by surprise. Over the last two months I became a victim of a
clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to
be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your

Here's how the scam works:

Two seriously good-looking 20-something girls come over to your car as you are
packing your shopping into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with
a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is
impossible not to look. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No'
and instead ask you for a ride to McDonalds.

You agree and they get into the back seat. On the way, they start undressing. Then
one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you, while
the other one steals your wallet. I had my wallet stolen October 4th, 9th, 10th,
twice on the 15th,17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th. Also November 1st & 4th, twice on the
8th, 16th, 23rd, 26th & 28th, three times last Monday and very likely again this
upcoming weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful. What a horrible way to take advantage of older
men. Warn your friends to be vigilant. Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99
each. I found cheaper ones for $1.99 at K- Mart and bought them out. Also, you
never will get to eat at McDonalds. I've already lost 11 pounds just running back
and forth to Lowe’s and Home Depot.

Happy New Year to all of you. I will be at Home Depot!

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.
Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great
beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their
But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the
chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years
later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shame-
ful condition.
In a sense we have come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declara-
tion of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as
white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation,
America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bank-
rupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check — a check that will
give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice. We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This
is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the
time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quick sands of racial injus-
tice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children.

It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the Negro's legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an
invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning. Those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will
now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted
his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.
But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful
place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.
We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again
and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community
must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is
tied up with our destiny. They have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone.
As we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back. There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, "When
will you be satisfied?" We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied, as long
as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as the
Negro's basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their selfhood and robbed of their
dignity by signs stating "For Whites Only". We cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing
for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.
I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. Some of you have come
from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of
creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive.
Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern
cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed. Let us not wallow in the valley of despair.
I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into
an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification;
one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will
be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.
This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this
faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to
pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.
This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my
fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring."
And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty
mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to
speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words
of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"
