We need to look to Red as an example of what we all might be had we the courage. A word from our Governor could do it. What’s he got to lose? The two Senate seats in Virginia are already held by members of his own party. Maybe he could do what’s right rather than what’s profitable, break the old habit that put him, and too many others like him, where he is. Most young men, or women, at the beginning of their political careers give at least some consideration to their responsibilities to the people, at some point they read the Constitution. Before the need to raise campaign money eroded that idealism, they believed in something, believed that right meant more than profit. By now even the Governor probably couldn’t stop the pipeline, or even hold them to the letter of the law, except as a career ending last hurrah. His agencies, like the Attorney General’s Office and the Department of Environmental Quality, and the Water Control Board, would be in open revolt, if he tried.
