But which one will respect us the morning after?

Salt Lick rarely understands the ins and outs of politics, but for what its worth, last night Channel 10 out of Roanoke reported on Southwest Virginia: 2005 Battleground, stating that since the end of the legislative session Tim Kaine has visited SW Virginia 18 times (10 times in May; more than twice a week), and Jerry Kilgore has visited 12 times since mid-March.

Our regional political commentator, Virginia Tech's Dr. Robert Denton (often referred to locally as "Dr. Bob") told Channel 10 that rural Virginia would be the main battleground in the Governor's race, so old Salt Lick perked up at that.

Battleground? Oh Lord, it's gonna be sign wars all over again.
