It's the fault of those worthless Republicans

Statehouse beat: Making sense of the Census...

Although the numbers weren't a surprise, it is disturbing to see it all laid out on a map. Once you get south of the mythical middle-point of West Virginia, Flatwoods, all counties in the southern half of the state lost population, with the exceptions being modest growth in Putnam, Greenbrier and Summers counties.

On his radio show, attorney Harvey Peyton declared that Southern West Virginia is in a death spiral, and it's hard to find any evidence to rebut that.

Keep in mind that the declines occurred despite having southern politicians in control of the Legislature.

For most of the decade, the Senate was controlled by President Earl Ray Tomblin, D-Logan; Majority Leader Truman Chafin, D-Mingo; and Finance Chairmen Walt Helmick, D-Pocahontas (but with a residence in Charleston and business interests in Southern West Virginia), and Oshel Craigo, D-Putnam.

In the House, it's been Speakers Rick Thompson, D-Wayne, and Bob Kiss, D-Raleigh, and since 2007, Finance Chairman Harry Keith White, D-Mingo.

Iffen it t'weren't for those rich Democrats in control of the Legislature then WV would really be in one hell of a mess.
