everyone knows

Brent Finnegan -- August 25th, 2006

If you’ve been following the “macaca story,” you might be sick of hearing about it by now. Senator George Allen and his press secretary, Bill Bozin certainly are. The Washington Post took a small jab at the Harrisonburg media today for beating a dead horse… Yeah, he said it. Everyone knows he said it. I’m sure the Webb people are hoping he slips up again.

Anyways, the news for Harrisonburg is that Friendship Industries received a 3-year, $9 million dollar contract to assemble “escape and evasion kits” for the Air Force. The money is coming from the federal government, under the Javits-Wagner-O’Day Act. Allen was there yesterday to publicly announce the contract.

    Hmm… the article from the Post says someone from WVPT asked about the future of TV. You said in your post about his visit, “one interesting question was thrown at him…”, and you work for WVPT…yes, it’s all so clear to me now…am I putting the right pieces together?
