God and Tom Brokaw at Charlotte DNC

  I had a brief conversation with Tom Brokaw at Furman in 2004 where he was there to chair a Democrat Party Debate in Greenville. Tom remembered Manuels Tavern from his Atlanta days and conversations with James Dickey, Jody Powell and sometimes Marshall Frady.
    Brokaw got immersed in Southern Religion in the 60's covering Civil Rights. He told Sean Hannity of Fox News about it Weds night in Charlotte.
