I haven’t had a chance to watch the entire half-hour of Iowa-native Danny Wilcox Frazier’s Driftless: Stories from Iowa from MediaStorm yet.
But I’ve watched the fifth segment, “Country Butcher,” and I know that I will finish the rest of it. It’s a moving story.
I spoke with Joe Kuba, the butcher in that segment, a couple years ago as part of my reporting on “A Pig in Three Parts.” I couldn’t get him into the final piece (though that’s his bloody floor grate in the background). He did appear on this blog, albeit without a name.
Frazier elicited some moving stories from Kuba, stories that I wasn’t able to. That always stings a little. Nicely done, Mr. Frazier.
