Taking This Show on the Road

Today I drove down to Spotsylvania County to visit a college friend and have a cookout with his friends and family. Driving out into this part of rural Virginia was a true joy because as I got further and further away from NOVA, I could feel all the stress and aggrivation of this area just flow away from me. In a sense, you can understand what George Allen meant by the real Virginia, namely because when dealing with the folks down in that area is VERY different than dealing with folks in this area.

In Spotsylvania, the folks there didn't care one bit about politics. Only thing they cared about was making sure there was good food on the table and plenty of it. Between the crabs, hot dogs, burgers, and the other fixings that were there, it was a VERY enjoyable day.

I for one think a lot of folks in this area needs to drive down to rural Virginia and just spend time down there with the people. It is a whole different experience. Things are more relaxed, easy paced, and just enjoyable. So for those of you up here who can't turn off your minds about politics and other things, then tough luck. As for me, I am getting a fork and about to enjoy some home made coconut cake. Yummy!

Well, I think you just proved my point very well. And unfortunately, this is where my own pledge of not censoring comments comes into play. Its very tempting, but I don't think I will be walking down that path. I pity people like you. You just can't turn your political brain off.

...and yet you live here? If you hate this area so much, why stick around?

Frankly, don't lecture your readership about "turning your political brain off". Re-read your post.

So when did I say I hated this area? And as for "turning your political brain off," some folsk don't need to talk about it all time.

But hey, you got your logic and lack of balls to at least admit as to who you are. And if you don't like what I got to say, then don't read it.

The Spotsylvania area is very lovely, but it too has its moments of backed up, bumper to bumper it takes 10 minutes to get through 3 stop lights of traffic as well.

To the other posters: I think BDM is just showing his appreciation for the different areas of VA and what they have to offer....

Why do you all care so much? Its not such a big deal, move on. Let him rant, and move on.

I taught in Spotsy for one year. I would love to move back to that part of VA. But it also is slowly being taken over by sprawl from Fredericksburg.
