KANAWHA GLORIES IN THE BRILLIANCE OF ITS BELLY BUTTON - They Know Bigger Is Better

(07/09/2008)

FLASHBACK 2001

By Bob Weaver

The high capitol of West Virginia - Charleston - is not faring well financially, although their newspapers express disgrace toward small rural counties for not making it.

The Charleston Daily Mail said Wirt is "A county in name only....It was never much of anything...Dead on the vine."

The underlying message by the muckety-mucks who drive the minions and politic over their appalachian domain are brighter, bigger and better and certainly know what is best for the peasants who live in the hills and hollers.

What arrogance!

There are compelling reasons to consolidate the fifty-five county governments and school systems, but these words from the masters can only polarize the situation.

We are hereby suggesting, starting today, the City of Charleston and Heavenly Kanawha separate themselves from the poverty and mismanagement of the rest of the state so they will no longer be bothered by peons and poverty, allowing them to glory in the brilliance of their belly buttons.

We are willing to relieve them of our "never much of anything" burden.

A West Virginia Poll conducted for the Charleston Daily Mail and WSAZ-3 gave the larger cities a "D" or an "F" for their financial condition. Fifty-two percent of the people in the Charleston-Huntington area said the larger cities are not making the grade.

We could concede, consolidate and merge with these smart big guys.

Wirt becomes Wood, etc.

History proves bigger is better. Right? They will do for us what we cannot do for ourselves, manage our money much better. Right?
