13. Funny thing about the Valley of Virginia

It runs roughly north-south, and is usually wide enough to be lined with pairs of cities running down its length.

The cities on the west side (Allegheny side) tend to be quite nice, with good universities, including James Madison, Virginia Tech, and Washington and Lee, and high turnout in favor of Democrats.

The cities on the east side (Blue Ridge side) have religious and community colleges, higher poverty, and tend to vote heavily Republican.

This guy is from the east side. Waynesboro was named for "Mad" Anthony Wayne. Our Valley's most amusing practical joker once proposed putting up a 60-foot monument to Wayne in the city's landfill.

I think there is something in the water around here.
