City Councilor Dave Norris invited three of us from the neighborhood to talk about the Woolen Mills Village National Historic District on his show "Postcards From Charlottesville".
The other Woolies had pre-existing plans.
I joined Dave, carrying audio-visual aids which producer David Dillehunt edited into the 15 minutes.
The show runs 30 minutes. 1st fifteen, Dave talks to councilor elect Holly Edwards, 2nd 15 minutes, all about the Woolen Mills Village.
The show is online.

Born in Burnt Tree, Virginia, "I was born with a caul over my head." Trudy was provided with a house to live in on the farm but chose to sleep in hay barns during the summer and in the shop, a cinder block utility building, during the winter.-Fixing Shadows

The total of funds stolen by two ladies from D.C. taxpayers has risen from 16 million to 20 million. Enterprising ladies! Washington Post has the story.
One of the alleged perpetrators has been ordered by the judge to wear a "monitoring device" and she is to refrain from making purchases larger than $5,000, but otherwise she is free to roll in her loot.
If I went out today and stole a half dozen wide screen TV's would I be free to watch them this evening?
The strange ways of justice...
