Wonderful coffee on a rainy morning, sitting by the fire…. Prepping for a day full of interviews.
Here’s why I’m in Asheville NC. The government shutdown was “planned” by this areas congressman LONG ago
Armed Rangers block Smoky Mountain resort gates, closed in shutdown. 90 workers laid off
@brepass yes, blue ridge… Correction. Thanks
So it sounds like May could be interviewing U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows of Western North Carolina, whom he referenced in one of his tweets. (More on Meadows’ role in the government shutdown.) The operator of the Pisgah Inn, Bruce O’Connell, is another likely interview subject. O’Connell said he was going to defy the shutdown order, then gave in. More as it comes in.
Thanks to loyal reader Jen for the heads-up.
