Each year the blog takes on a different focus. In 2019 the goal is for each post to bring you the reader a lesson, quote, message, or story that can help you grow.
Today my post is going to be really short. I am going to provide you a link to a post that a friend of mine John Tanner wrote today. His post is on Lumberton NC, my friends, and of course 4th Annual Beer Snob Pig Picking which features BARBECUE.
John Tanner is a former federal employee of the US Justice Department, mainly litigating voting rights cases. For those curious yes he had a fascinating interest in the 9th Congressional mess from 2018.
Despite his professional background his passion in life is finding and eating good BARBECUE. He has his own blog. That blog profiles amazing places to eat mostly BARBECUE.
John and his wife Nancy live in Washington DC but he has been to Lumberton two times.
At the end of this quote from John’s post today you will find a link to his entire post. PLEASE READ IT!
I love going to Lumberton. More and more, Americans live in bubbles, in neighborhoods in which they never interact with people with different views. It drives me crazy — don’t get me started.
There’s a book about the phenomenon — The Big Sort: Why the Clustering of Like-Minded Americans is Tearing Us Apart. I don’t see that in Lumberton — certainly not at the Beer Snob Pig Picking, which is a gathering of all sorts of people from all sorts of places.
Maybe it’s having both a large university and a large military population, both bringing in people from all over the United States — and beyond. Maybe part of it is having to come together to deal with hurricanes in 2016 and 2018.
Whatever it is, it gives me a chance to reconnect with friends and make some new ones. It makes for a wonderful break from the Washington bubble.
In addition to really good people, there’s really good barbecue, and really good beer. Based on this year’s pork, I’ve given the Annual Beer Snob Pig Picking my Top Places tag.
