I always get angry when someone brings up 'exploitation' issues viz a vis Shelby. He grew up in the hills of eastern Kentucky. He used to travel with his uncle, the only doctor around for miles, to visit these folks when he was a boy. To them Shelby is family. Besides, there's not an exploitative bone in Shelby Lee Adams' body.
