On a lighter note

Last week's Front Porch podcast featured an interview with WV's official folklorist Emily Hilliard. Catch the podcast here.

And, if you could use a little good news, Medicaid expansion in Louisiana, which took effect June 1, seems to be a huge hit. Already over 200,000 low income working residents have signed up and the total may reach 375,000 or more.I  hope this nudges other southern states to step up.

Finally, WV's budget goat rope is finally over for a few months. I guess it could have been worse. It probably will be again. At least a shutdown was avoided. The game will begin again in earnest in January if not before.
