I’ve had a lot to write about lately on one of my other blogs, cvillenews.com, and some of y’all might be interested in two of those stories.
The first is that some Christianists are all in a lather that a pagan flier was sent home with school kids…but it was only sent home because Jerry Falwell threatened to sue the school if they didn’t let religious fliers be sent home. He forgot that there are more religions than Christianity. I’m still waiting for this story to explode.
The second is VDOT’s plan to close road maintenance facilities across the state. They held a hearing for us about it…in Culpeper…at 5pm on a workday. Thanks, folks. So we pressured them into holding another one here in Albemarle a week ago, and they confessed that the quality of service will decline. It seems that they simply have no choice, because a) the GA just isn’t funding transportation and b) the GA has ordered them to outsource maintenance. Now it turns out that they don’t have any data to support the closures — they seem to be arbitrary. VDOT will make their decision on Friday, and I think we all know what they’ll decide.
