Don't Abandon Tourism, But Don't Depend on It Either.

In my previous post I mentioned "that magical way" to prosperity. This seems to be the route most Virginia locales are seeking in today's economic atmosphere.

My area of Virginia rose to economic prosperity "way back when" on the wave of local entrepreneurs. John D. Bassett, Thomas B. Stanley, and many others named Franck, Gravely, Hooker, Pannell, Walker....

Today, our leaders seem to be hoping for something to drop into their laps from the Federal government that they can claim as their own.
