The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.


John Henke from George Allen's official blog reports that James Webb really does have quite a knack for fiction:

Jim Webb likes to tell votes that he’s a fiction writer…and he is! For example, consider the following claim on his website: (and repeated here)

“There are 153,000 Virginians earning an embarrassingly low $5.15 an hour minimum wage…”

Meanwhile, writing in the non-fiction world, here are the Bureau of Labor Statistics figures of workers earning at or below the minimum wage:

Virginia — 60,000

Missed it by that much.
