The Barber

Here's a short story I found that dates to 1947. Judging from some of the people that post on mapleleafweb.com forums, things haven't changed all that much.

Just a caution, Flannery O’Connor lived in the south in the first half of the 20th century. There is language in the story that some might find objectionable.

It is trying on liberals in Dilton.

After the Democratic White Primary, Rayber changed his barber. Three weeks before it, while he was shaving him, the barber asked, "Who you gonna vote for?"

"Darmon," Rayber said.
