Full disclosure - I'm a Blacksburg resident, have been since 2001. Now that's out of the way.
Excellent op-ed in Sunday's Roanoke Times regarding the high cost of elitism. My favorite line (emphasis mine):
"The costs came in the forms of economic stagnation, limited job opportunities, underfunding for the social infrastructure of bridges, roads and schools, and high property taxes."
Hat tip to New River Journal - he's got several good links there regarding the First & Main debate.
