… but one takes one’s commemorations where one finds them.

[Come to] the 10th anniversary of the Agee Crash Bash Monday at the Clinton Highway bar that sits almost astride the very spot where James Agee’s father had his legendary fatal accident. [This crash inspired] the Pulitzer Prize winning autobiographical novel, “A Death in the Family.” … [W]e usually have readings and … local music stars to serenade us. The mythic “Cotter Pin of Destiny” will once again change hands for a year’s keeping by some thus blessed individual. It is currently in the hands of an actual second cousin of James Agee. This being the centennial of Agee’s birth lends some additional psychic heft to the event, don’t you think?

This is where we’ll be — the Checker Flag Sports Bar, 7428 Clinton Hwy, 947-8667. The bar is in a shabby little commercial strip in the southeast quadrant of the intersection of Clinton Highway and Emory Road in Powell.
