Default Alabama/ Georgia Boaters, I got a response to The jerk, Steve Flowers

Friday Steve Flowers wrote that Alabama jet ski was run over by a 39' got fast, well it was BS, Here is his response, he said it happen in Georgia?? I think he is back paddeling

Here is link http://www.steveflowers.us/column.htm

William,

Thank you for your email and for reading the column.

In regard to the recent column which mentioned the boating accident you
are
referring to I have done some further research and it does appear that
the
information I read was concerning an accident on a Georgia lake as
opposed to
one of our Alabama lakes. I was under the assumption it was an Alabama
lake
but have since learned otherwise. However, hopefully this type of
horrendous
accident will not occur in Alabama.

Thank you again.

Steve

I received the exact same canned response, word for word.

If it was a genuine mistake, he'd have published a correction on his site.

The only lakes in Georgia that are likely to have a 39' PB are Lanier and Allatoona, both near Atlanta.

If this was a real case it would be all over the AJC !!!

He's a lying POS........
