OPINION: Small towns

I was born May 4, 1963 in Wadesboro, North Carolina, in Anson County. My father was born there and so was his father and his father before him. My mother’s people settled in Anson County for about a hundred years before moving to points west in the late 1800s. I say all of that to show that I’m a product of the small towns that make up rural North Carolina.
