What about Virginian identity?

Obviously we’re focused on DC and the immediate area, but that immediate area includes Northern Virginia. Today’s Kojo Nnamdi show will spend a half hour talking about Virginian identity and have the directory of the Virginia Folklife Program, Jonathan Lohman , as a guest. As you might imagine, we here are interested in issues of regional identity and identification…

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
