Local Quotable

"There is something about working in the place where I grew up. I feel there is a different kind of dedication. Every patient that walks in that door is like family."
-Bryan Rogers, Winston-Salem native
and founder of Winston Salem Wound Care

I wonder what percentage of Winston's population is originally from here, either returned or never left. I have no idea who keeps track of such things, but I'd be interested. Certainly I've met more natives here than I ever met in DC, where sometimes I felt like the only person who wasn't from somewhere else.

(Heck, even my own parents weren't from DC; my father was from Winston-Salem - and he came back - and my mother from Ocala.)
