A new low

The WV legislature hit a new low today, which is kind of an accomplishment these days. The Senate voted along party lines by a margin of one to support right to work for less. That was bad enough, but one Republican senator felt obliged to insult the working people who were watching the spectacle. Meanwhile, the House moved closer to abolishing the state's prevailing wage for construction workers working on public building projects.

On other fronts, this may be the last post for a while. WV is about to get hit hard by a winter storm if predictions are right. Around here, that usually means no phone, electricity, internet or water for several days.

Stay safe!
