POPCORN SUTTON: CRIMINAL OR FOLK HERO (OR BOTH)?

POPCORN HOLDS A BOOKSIGNING.
People who are familiar with this region (Maggie Valley, Cherokee, Smoky Mountain National Park) have probably seen Popcorn. He is a regular "attraction" in Maggie Valley where he attracts considerable attention. He likes to talk and he knows how to hustle. However, sometimes he vanishes for a spell. During these absences, he may be making a movie (Check out Neal Hutcheson's documentary on Popcorn, The Last One) or he may be in some remote cove in Cocke County practicing his craft. Stay tuned.
P. S. There are a dozen blogs featuring posts on Popcorn and providing detailed information on his activities ...in fact, his daughter has one. However, if you want the details of his life and his arrest, go to the blog, Smokeymountainbreakdown.blogspot.com When you get there, check out the little white rectangle in the upper left of the blog. If you write "Popcorn Sutton" in that rectangle, and click, you will get a detailed account of the whole affair. Rosie, the manager of Smokeymountainbreakdown is a sympathetic (and humorous) reporter.

  5. Thank you, Betty. Please keep posting and recruit anyone that might be interested. This blog still feels like a gymnasium with a small group of people sitting in the bleachers. Lots of echoes in here.
