J.W. Williamson was the founding editor in 1972 of the Appalachian Journal: A Regional Studies Review, which he edited until July of 2000. He has taught college classes in Appalachian history, cultural politics, and literature, and he has lectured widely on the pop-culture history of "Appalachia" in the American consciousness. His books include Interviewing Appalachia, Southern Mountaineers in Silent Films, and Hillbillyland: What the Mountains Did to the Movies and What the Movies Did to the Mountains. He has won the Thomas Wolfe Award given by the Western North Carolina Historical Society, the Laurel Leaves Award given by the Appalachian Consortium, a special Weatherford Award given by Berea College, and the Cratis Williams-James Brown Award given by the Appalachian Studies Association.

Just as Fiorina only sees the need for drug treatment after her step-daughter dies, only if someone in this idiot's family were the victim of gun violence would he see the need for policy to prevent gun deaths. The NRA and their Republican shills never explain why in the days before large magazines and widely available semi-automatic weapons and before the abominable SCOTUS interpretation of the "Second Amendment" there were so few gun killings.
If there is an explanation, are you willing to listen? Our culture does not value human life. Our culture had an erosion of moral values.
