Covington to lose plant, 220 jobsI sure hope those tourism jobs that Delegate Benny Keister is creating by renaming a road, and those Governor Mark Warner is creating by giving names to hiking trails, and the jobs Congressman Rick Boucher is creating by refurbishing a little-known and never-used public park kick in soon.

In the meantime, as in every other case of manufacturing job loss in the area, the Lear employees are invited to pack their meager possessions and move north.
For the love of God.
