A few of the Virginians in my neighborhood

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?

we all have our contributions to make...god bless you for not exlcluding seka...don't know who she is but i'll take your word for it.

Wayne Newton a "swarthy bohunk?" I laughed so hard I nearly cried! The guy always made me feel like if someone was continously scratching their nails on a blackboard, and I think that description can also be used to describe his voice. But the Toms and Seka (never heard of her either) are ok by me. Short list of great Virginians, though.

When raincoaster finds out you have mentioned her but not added a link, your life won't be worth a pinch of possum shit. I'm telling you, the woman is dangerous!

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I leave a response when I especially enjoy a article on a site or I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.
It's caused by the fire communicated in the article I browsed. And on this article "A few of the Virginians in my neighborhood". I was actually moved enough to drop a comment :-P I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it simply me or does it look like some of these responses come across like left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at additional sites, I'd
like to keep up with you. Would you make a
