Ewing: You know, I was close. I was close. North Carolina was a very good school, but when I went down there, they put me in that Carolina Inn and there was a big Ku Klux Klan rally in North Carolina when I was there. And I was like, “You know what? I’m not coming down here. I’m staying my butt back in Boston.”
Dan Patrick: So the reason why you didn’t go, or the main reason, is the KKK had a rally going on at the time?
Ewing: Big rally, man.
Ewing also told Patrick that found himself bugged out (nailed it, via being a professional writer) by the nighttime sounds he encountered down south:
Ewing: And you know in North Carolina, you hear all the crickets? So they had me, stuck me in that Carolina Inn, and nights down in North Carolina, it gets pitch black, and I’d hear all the crickets. And I’m jumping, and I’m like, “What the heck?” So I said, “No, no, I’m going back.”
The KKK could be a deal breaker.
In life timing is everything.
