Pick of the day: Va. to Hampton Roads: Drop dead
Re: your editorial “Running for cover on transportation” (Jan. 2):
I think most residents of Hampton Roads would agree with you. But considering just how bad our infrastructure has become, and considering the cowardice or ignorance displayed by mostly rural legislators from other parts of the commonwealth, what else can we do?
Hampton Roads is one of two economic engines that pay for most everyone else’s state-funded needs, and we’ve been treated like our contribution is insignificant and we should feel grateful for the dribs and drabs we get.
Meanwhile, no one outside this region can comprehend just how bad it’s become.
In your wildest dreams, do you really believe these legislators, with people like Grover Norquist pulling their strings, will ever properly fund public transportation needs? Oh, please.
My personal recommendation is secession. I’d love to see how the rest of Virginia does without our economy to fuel it.
