    Great Pics! You’re a very lucky man Dayn Perry!

    Is Dayn pronounced like Dan, Dane, or what?

  3. daynperry

    Steve – It’s pronounced “Dane.” Blame my parents for the confusing spelling.

  4. I can tell a story or two about Dayn Perry. For example…

    Heh. Been following you sporadically on FOX and $8 Beers, then found this, just the other day. Good little niche you carved out. Thought I’d say hi. Haven’t read anything here I disagree with, but I’ll hope to comment if that changes.

    “Centrist independent,” ah… I’d have thought enduring the slimeball commenters to your FOX columns all this time would have nudged you a little more to the left.

    Congrats on your family. You might remember my wife, Amanda. Married 8 years now. Two daughters 1.5 and almost 4 years.

    Grats on the book as well. That’s awesome. GL on the next one. I write on legal and other developments at blog.uslegal.com, whenever I get motivated. I try not to let my political leanings creep in (it’s a company blog after all) but I’m getting progressively worse at that.

    Cheers bud, drop me a line.

    As someone who knew Dayn “back in the day” at Mississippi College and having followed his writing for years, it’s awesome to see a new blog where I can see more of what is on his mind.

    Lookin’ forward to it.

    Mississippi, huh? Well how about a (book) review of “Joiner?”

  7. daynperry

    The book by James Whitehead? Believe it or not, I’ve actually read that. I didn’t know anyone else had even heard of that book …

  8. Jonathan Small

    Do you read much Greg Isles? Almost all of his books are based on Nantchez (sp?) Miss.

  9. daynperry

    I’ve never read Isles, but he used to do signings at a bookstore I worked at in grad school. Very nice man.

    What about this stud pitcher out at USC by the name of Andrew Triggs? What a stud! He has a record of 2-1 with a 2.53 era. and is only a freshman.

  11. If you ever want to read a reader’s feedback đŸ™‚ , I rate this post for four from five. Decent info, but I have to go to that damn yahoo to find the missed parts. Thanks, anyway!
