Birds of a Feather

The Roanoke Times - let it be duly noted - endorses the reelection bid of Democrat John Edwards for state senate.  That would be the same John Edwards who, in his most recent TV ad, makes a campaign pledge to bring passenger rail service to his district.

It somehow seems fitting.  An enterprise that depends on 16th century technology for its profitability - slapping print to paper made from trees - goes for a politician who wants to bring 18th century technology in transportation to his district.

They deserve each other.
