Here are three short North Carolina stories, hand-curated for you, the discerning Rabbit Hole reader.
Thats it I am all in on the rabbit hole. The hair piece about the grahams. Woooo. Strong and fun stuff. I am going paid. Keep it up dude!
Gwen Shamblin Lara needs to be on that evangelist hair list
I think Franklin's hairstyle is actually a calculated marketing move. His whole thing is to continue his father's legacy. The more people mistake him for his father, the more money and influences he will have. So it's not accidental that's he's cultivating the Billy Graham "look" now that he's older and looks very similar to his father.
The Baby Billy!! That’s exactly what I was thinking.
I am writing to respond to your erroneous and misleading portrayal of Champion's record for timber cutting, and particularly the incorrect impression it gives of my grandfather's leadership of Champion. I am a great grandson of Peter G. Thomson, the founder of Champion, and a grandson of Reuben B. Robertson, Sr. who ran the Canton mill and North Carolina operations for decades. I am writing a biography about my grandfather, my father (Reuben, Jr., who ran Champion after my grandfather), and my eldest brother, Reuben, III. It also touches on the life and career of my great-grandfather and on Champion itself. From all my research about the company and my grandfather, he and Champion were leaders in forestry conservation. He even gave Dr. Carl Schenck, a world leader in good forest management practices, a place to relocate the Biltmore Forest School after Dr. Schenck had a falling out with George Vanderbilt. As the Asheville Citizen Times said in its editorial about my grandfather after his death in 1972, "He was a pioneer of timber conservation in the mountain region."
