Commentary editor of The Anniston Star. Memphis native. University of Memphis and Jacksonville State University grad. Cardinals fan. And, yes, that's me in the wildcat mascot costume. Anything for a story. I'm a journalist, a writer, a storyteller and an editor. I write about politics, history, culture and life. Everyone has a story. Sometimes, you have to climb into a wool costume in 90-degree Alabama heat to find it.
