This just happened in the next university town down the road from me in Harrisonburg. Hardball politics is in the air. I smell it wafting over the mountains.
Somewhere along the way Northern Virginia, populated with lots of government workers and people originally from the Northeast came to dominate my beloved Virginia. Now we have many of the same political problems people north of the Mason Dixon do. Heck we even have Terry McCauliffe, crony extraordinaire as our governor.
