WHQR Commentary: "Pardon Me"

During the Thanksgiving season, some turkeys have it better than others. Commentator Nan Graham celebrates her 21 years as a WHQR commentator by exploring the presidential tradition of pardoning a turkey, or as she likes to call it -- TOTUS (Turkey of the United States).

Nan Graham, a WHQR Commentator since 1995, has had a long love affair with language...from The Real Mother Goose and Alice in Wonderland, to Thomas Wolfe and Truman Capote.

WHQR Commentaries don't necessarily reflect the views of WHQR Radio, its editorial staff, or its members.

Nan Graham has deep roots in Alabama and Carolina soil. She graduated from Tuscaloosa High School and attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she graduated with an AB in English. She obtained her Masters degree from The Citadel in Charleston. In 1995 Nan began broadcasting her bi- weekly commentaries on WHQR Public Radio in Wilmington. She continues these bi-weekly broadcasts along with teaching at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in the Honors College. She has taught for thirty-eight years...everything from first grade to graduate level university courses...(the last is far easier than first grade!).
