Southern charm must be earned

To the editor: This is in reference to last week’s letter from Mr. McClernan.

I am a Brunswick County native and have worked with the public for several years. I even know people originally from the North who I consider friends.

As for our “cotton and tobacco picking” days, this was a good way for a teenager to earn honest money.

I guess I have too much “southern charm” to tell you where you can put your money. By the way, people in the South crop tobacco. They don’t pick it.

You see, Mr. McClernan, I don’t consider all northerners who have moved South “damn Yankees,” only the ones with attitudes like tours.

If after two years in the South you don’t know what southern charm is, maybe you haven’t given anyone a reason to show it to you.
