New Times In The Old South

12/18/02 Marilyn Schwartz"Southern Belle Primer".."Why Princess Margaret could Never Be a Phi Kappa Gamma" was readed 1st by me when Philadelphia had a 'rent a audio" store in its 17th & Chestnut Street area in its Center City..The audio was hilarious...I proceeded to borrow the book when at a library and borrowed "New Times In the Old South" a few years ago.."New Times In The Old South" makes me(even as a Northerner) a little bit sad after reading about the traditions in "Southern Bele Primer"....It shows what happens when someone opens the door to those without your attitudes/values and they have even worse than "influences"..just 'plain old money' as their ticket in(at least with influences they'd have to behave a little to spare their sponsors from embarassment).and how these non-southerners with 'stacks of cash" ,just for the fun of it violated the Southern traditions with gaudy extravaganza.Both books by Schwartz will leave you wanting more (They have catchy titles..'Princess Margaret's name' is what made "Southern Belle Primer" catch my interest..and they are really very small size books..hardback,the size of a paperback with 1/2 the pages of the average paperback(e.g.[printed in the USA]: Kensington Publication Corp.'s Zebra Books "Texas Lovestorm" by Linda Windsor(ISBN0821735497) has 381 pages
