      area. I lived in Orange County for years and years, and know a lot of people in Chatham County. It's pretty rural, and I was admittedly pretty snarky about the cows and the JD bottles. But the way I look at it, I'm from the general area and a NC native, so I can throw bricks with a bit more impunity -- these are my people McCrory and Goolsby are pissing all over. As for the classist bit, let's not throw that one if you don't mind. My family comes from a line of tobacco farmers, and they could have shot "Deliverance" at my family reunion. It's doubtful that you'll meet anyone LESS "classist" than me. (Unless you bring up music, in which case I can get well and truly elitist, to my everlasting shame.)
