A few of the Virginians in my neighborhood

Filed under: Uncategorized — Frontier Former Editor @ 6:10 pm

It was helpfully pointed out to me by Raincoaster that I’m “The 43-Year-Old Virginian” (slightly mauled quote there). Inspired by that and her delightful neighborhood travelogue, I should give credit to some of my fellow Virginians today:

Thomas Jefferson, who helped make today’s festivities possible. Give it up for Red, yeah!!!

Tom Wolfe of Richmond, who gave us “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test,” “The Right Stuff” and “Bonfire of the Vanities” in addition to various essays and other works.

Seka – porn star extraordinaire (so I’ve been told) born right up the road (maybe a poor choice of words) in Radford, Va.

Wayne Newton – hail, hail oh squeaky-voiced, greasy, swarthy bohunk!

Now if that isn’t a cultural cross section, what is?
