Barry Saunders has written polarizing columns at the News & Observer since he started there in 1993. He is considered both the most loved and hated columnist the newspaper has, but his journey to newspapers wasn't a straight one. He originally wanted to be a basketball player, and then a preacher before he settled on becoming a writer. A missed encounter with sports legend Dean Smith and early exposure to journalist Chuck Stone shaped the path Saunders followed throughout his life.
