Uh! Do we really need to bring the conversation to comparing Billyburg to anything?? Beyond tired.

One thing you should realize about Richmond is that there is a Williamsburg, Virginia, nearby (about an hour's drive away) - home of my alma mater, William & Mary (I'm a Virginia native). It's full of students who have nothing to do when not studying but go to frats, sororities, and pubs (ick to all) when within the colonial town walls, so no wonder Richmond is an alternate go-to for the young and hip when they've a rare free moment from the rigors of class.

Isn't Wyoming voting today as well? Making it 11 states that vote instead of 10?

Brian, you are a smarter and more articulate man than I will ever be. Please cease the use of the tired cliche word HIPSTER.

It was over last year and is even more over now. Basing your reporting around it will only make me cry.

As a Richmond-to-Brooklyn transplant, I can promise you that for every fixed gear and vintage store in Williamsburg, there are three in Richmond. It's the Williamsburg of the South.

Native Virginian here; funny you should mention license plates, since VA has something like 25% of the custom "vanity" license plates in the country. People are big on personal expression, and their cars. It's a funny state with wildly different cultures- Metropolitan/suburban in the north, rural Appalachia in the west, big military influence in the south east, and the hipster-heavy Richmond in the middle.

Inconceivable to think of a republican presidential candidate speaking against the military industrial complex??? RON PAUL (41%-43% Obama) does all the time. Eisenhower did so guardedly and only on his way out. Can you conceive of Bill-Hill or O'bomber ever even uttering the phrase?
