  • Ordinary people live valorous, extraordinary lives

    Recently, I read Scott Turow’s novel, “Reversible Errors.” It’s not a book I found especially interesting, but one I labored to finish nonetheless. I am always certain there is some redemptive value, some phrase or thought that will provide fodder for meditation.

    Regardless of what a lot of “outsiders” may say, in North Carolina, barbecue means pulled pork. The word “barbecue” is used as a noun, not a verb or an adjective. When you ask for a plate of barbecue around here, you’re going to get a plate of steaming pulled (or chopped) pork, along with some coleslaw and hush puppies, as well.
