Are West Virginians as hospitable as legislators and Ogden Newspapers think they are?
Yesterday’s Ogden editorial, “WVa. a Welcome Home for Refugees,” begins by telling us what the WV legislature did at the end of their most recent legislative session:

Today’s Wheeling Intelligencer editorializes about the infrastructure package in order to praise/support our local congressman

Newspapers on the cheap: A look at today’s Wheeling Intelligencer
Last week’s news
When was today's front section assembled? Last Friday?
