Blowing Rock Retains Its Cold Shoulder for Madam Foxx

Eye witnesses at the Blowing Rock July 4th Parade yesterday say that the crowd's reception of U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx was "indifference trending toward disdain."

The Madam was evidently assigned a slot at the end of the parade. She didn't approve of that assignment and evidently wedged herself into a more advanced section, very near NC House Rep. Cullie Tarleton. While Tarleton was wildly cheered, Foxx got mainly an icy silence.

We also learned yesterday that the Madam's husband Tom sent out an e-mail trying to raise money for the Foxx campaign in commemoration of her 64th birthday, suggesting "perhaps $640, ten dollars for each year -- or even just $64, a friendly reminder of her age."

Or how about, instead, some Beatles' lyrics:
Send me a postcard, drop me a line stating point of view.
Indicate precisely what you mean to say, yours sincerely wasting away.
Give me your answer, fill in a form, mine forever more.
Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty four?
