"I love the South.  I love the drawl.  I love the pork lard.  
I love too much salt and too much sweet.  
I love the humidity.  There is a patina on Southerners.  
I think it is because of our dynamic history.  
There's a lot of pain that has happened in our history; 
a lot of mistakes made.  But an unfortunate circumstance 
can turn into an opportunity for greatness.  I think the 
South is great because of all the trying times - the tensions, hardships, wars and riots.  
All of those things really make a place... 
Well, for me it makes it home.  
There is grace in every sorrow.  
I think that is being Southern."
