Take a look at this. Be patient. This man, Ben Dunlap, who is the president of Wofford College in South Carolina, is a true raconteur in the tradition of the American South. Which means his stories weave into and out of one another until, at the end, it all pays off in a singular distillate of wisdom and insight. I don’t want to steal his thunder, but what makes Ben Dunlap interesting — and maybe some kind of up-country South Carolina guru — is his peculiarly voracious brand of curiosity and his ability to connect the dots of his own experiences, interactions, and obsessions.
