Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Take Me Home Country Roads
So....last weekend we had our annual family palooza out in Deep Creek, MD for the tenth year in a row. Gorgeous weather, kayaking, great food, and a chance to see the American Open Whitewater Kayak races at the newly opened man made course at Wisp Resorts.

On the way home from the weekend on Monday, I decided to drive up through the Savage River gorge area forming the boundary between Maryland and West Virginia. My first clue that something was wrong, was seeing a lot of McCain/Palin posters in the yards of farms and trailers (OK, maybe I wasn't surprised by the trailer signs), but when I stopped to get gas in an out of the way hamlet, and encountered a biker with "White Power" tatooed across the back of both arms, I wondered if I was even in the US anymore.

Thankfully, it may be an anomaly. American Research Group is giving Obama an eight point lead in WV for the same time period I drove through the far western end of it.
