Dedication

This website is devoutly dedicated to all of Larry's friends and associates, both early and late, who have influenced and mentored him. However, it also should be noted that, being who they are, a majority of them have been late most of the time.

More Out of Almost Empty Pockets :(

The recent Martinsburg Journal Guest Editorial, "Sales Taxes Should be Collected Fairly" (Monday, September 26th, 2011) is truly troublesome.

While touting the vigorous imposition of e-commerce sales taxes as only a "fairness" issue, this state legislator's sincere yet simply and seriously flawed proposal instead reflects the ongoing efforts of some politicos to steal the remaining loose change out of our almost empty pockets.

Even sadder, with a healthy state budget surplus, West Virginia families nevertheless remain among the poorest in the nation.

Instead of looking for more ways to tax and control, lets consider some diligent proposals to reduce the tax and regulation burdens, thereby propelling all of us toward prosperity instead of poverty.

Magisterial Districts & Dinosaurs

A Letter to the Editor:

A hearty "Amen!" to the recent editorial by Morgan County's weekly "Morgan Messenger", suggesting that West Virginia's outmoded Magisterial Districts be abolished.
