As for it not being cosmopolitan... good. We don't WANT it to be. The sooner all you goddamn city folk realize that, the better.

Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
I have mixed feelings about Byrd. He was one of those few Dixiecrats who chose to stay with the Democrats, after LBJ got the Civil Rights bill passed, but he was still racist. However, he was an ardent supporter of the military, and cared about our troops. Byrd was against wasteful spending, but was the king of pork, which was quite an enigma.
Yes, Senator Byrd, like most politicians, is a mixed bag, with both good and bad aspects. But I am quite surprised that nobody is talking about the BIG story here. While people are either trashing him or defending him, they are missing the big picture - The next Senator from West Virginia is surely going to be a Republican, thus shoring up the GOP's ability to wage war on Obama's agenda, via the filibuster. How could people miss this? This is huge.

The ghost of Jack Kevorkian for President's Physician: 2016
Didn't realize you were West Virginian Riv. How you liking Charlottesville?
And yeah, god bless WVA tourism. Snowshoe is by far the best snowboarding in the immediete Virginia area (though sadly been a few years since I've been). And with Charlestown opening up the Hollywood Casino we get a nice place to go for a weekend of gambling without having to deal with the obnoxious Jersey Turnpike.
Heading there for my bachelor party in August actually
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
