    ROFL, well Sterling now...but I get your point. I'm actually not too tapped into the local political scene in the town. Grew up in Southwestern VA, school in the eastern part of the state.

    And really, if there's any political position one would likely take from living in Herndon I'd think it'd be "God damnit, can we please get these mexicans...illegal or legal...to start using the goddamn crosswalks instead of crossing the streets to the 7-11 in herds?!"

It doesn't take much rational thought to connect the dots
    The Chattanooga area only went about 60-40 Romney over Obama. They might very well have received more support than criticism from the subscribers in that area, but that doesn't mean its a good business idea to completely alienate 40% of them.

    People called and wrote into country radio stations to stop playing dix chicks songs, that does not stop them from speaking.
