A favorite piece of West Virginia has been neglected by my co-blogger and myself. We have forgetten to share with you a special snippet of culture from the hills of WV's state capitol. So, without further adieu, this West Virginian blogger presents....
The Vent Line in the Charleston, WV Daily Mail newspaper! This wonderful, afternoon paper gives anyone the chance to call into their "vent line" and say something, and then it gets printed in the newspaper. You get such fine comments like "You people with your scooters, get off the highway."
The vent line was popular in a certain senator's office back in the 90s. A favorite coworker sat at his desk and howled at the funny tidbits his fellow WVians would leave on the vent line. None of us in the office could ever make up anecdotes as funny as the real thoughts expressed by common folks in WV.
Frankly, everyone should bookmark this link. It will provide you minutes and minutes and humor everyday.
