When I last wrote this column, I noted how those groups that whined, griped, and complained about life used the IOC to get into the olympic spotlight. Well, those groups pale in comparison to the cowardice that was practiced by one or more in Atlanta early Saturday morning. President Clinton noted that those involved were evil and cowards who were contrary to the olympic spirit illustrated by the athletes. Few times will the President and I agree, but we do now.

Picture if you will, the sights and sounds that night before the bombing. A decent band was playing rock and roll. People from all over the world were partying, Atlanta style. There were families out late to enjoy the fun. There were those from other nations thrilled to be in such a place. With them were groups of friends and young couples on great dates. Then, it all ended because of the coward.

The spirit of the games was brought down with one blast. Somewhere there is the coward. Maybe he has a political ax to grind without the courage to enter the democratic debate. Perhaps he hates people. Perhaps he is just stupid. And, perhaps it is a group.

Whoever it is deserves a bit of Georgia justice. Yes, let's show the world what the South can do to these types of people. There are plenty of good ole boys down in the swamps of lower Georgia that would be more than happy to help out.

So, when the FBI finds the coward(s) involved, they should turn them over the to NBSHC--None of the BS Here Committee. The committee then could take the coward(s) and tie them to stumps in Georgia swamps and let the alligators and the bugs do the rest.

I can picture CNN carrying live shots now of a convoy of pick-up trucks with the coward(s) tied up in the back of one, making their way down a dirt road in the swamp. You can picture the Governor of Georgia saying, " Well, we acted the way ya'll wanted and you see what it got us. Now, we will give the world a little justice."

I doubt that such a thing would happen. But, if it did, you can bet the next time some militia, terrorist, or nut who didn't get a date to the prom in high school and wants to kill for it, will think twice. Allah, Betty Jean's rejection from the prom, or the cause of the Klan, just aint worth being gator bait.

Richard Brian McCarty has worked on several political campaigns of conservatives. He holds a Juris Doctor from the University of South Carolina and a BS degree from Lander University. An experienced writer, McCarty's columns are written from a distinctly Southern point of view. He is sometimes Southern, sometimes conservative, sometimes humorous, and sometimes all three.
