I’ve written about this many times, and for years it has been getting not only worse but more obvious: the Blue electoral tsunami rising through Northern Virginia, the kind of crest that tips an entire state. Yes, I live in that embarrassingly-blue sector. We’re rich and we vote like it.
But forget names and labels and parties and median family income. You know you’re in a wealthy area–and one that loves public spending–when bond measures totaling hundreds of millions of dollars pass by margins of four to one!
We keep the entire state afloat–might as well serve ourselves too.
