Echoes of 1861:

Yesterday a good friend told me that I live in the state that receives the most Federal dollars in contracts. I find it hard to believe that Virginia receives more than California or Texas, but given the military and government contractor headquarters here, it might just be possible.

This friend is a native son from Richmond, so when he also said that West Virginia receives the least, possibly as revenge for its secession, I listened.

The war of secession never really ended. Perhaps.
