Notes On Camp

From Rabun County, Georgia—ironically, not far from the Appalachian Trail—comes this story of yet another Republican who has trouble keeping his pants on:
A former mayor found sitting naked and holding a beer at a Rabun County campsite told police he wasn’t the same naked man seen walking around earlier.

Mark Musselwhite, 43, said he was hot and had been in the creek, according to a Georgia Department of Natural Resources incident report. He apparently didn’t think he was doing anything wrong.

Musselwhite, of Gainesville, was arrested last weekend after being confronted by state DNR authorities. He was charged with public indecency.

. . .

Musselwhite, a Republican, was elected to the City Council in 2000. He served on the council for six years, including as mayor of the town. In 2006, he lost a bid for a state Senate seat.

Musselwhite previously served as deacon of First Baptist Church in Gainesville.
While pondering the image of this pale naked person, feel free to come up with your own riff on "Musselwhite." But let's not be so quick to judge this hot and thirsty man. For all we know, the former deacon was getting ready to perform a baptismal ceremony.

One which, for some reason, involves full nudity on behalf of the baptizer, and open cans of Natty Light.
