Imagine my surprise when I saw this story in today's Daily Mail about a reunion of Golden Horseshoe winners today. The award is given out to select eighth graders in the state who master the basics of West Virginia history. I won one, way back when in 1988, as did my father (in 1950!). So why am I reading about it in the newspaper! OK, yeah, so I'm not Henry Louis Gates, but does he write a blog that nobody reads? I bet not!
