And it seemed to be a soft leak, but Amazon was rumored to have selected NoVA for its 2nd HQ

Interesting. Did they say where in NoVA? Last I heard DC was the front-runner, but NoVA was right behind them.

Its all relative. NOVA costs a lot more than the rest of the state too.

I heard Arlington. Crystal City would actually make sense with Reagan National right there.

Where would they put in at CC? Unless they use something already built but not occupied (which might not be a problem as there seems like a new high rise goes up every month over there). I remember Alexandria being considered, but the proposed locations (this might have been conjecture in the WaPost article I was reading) weren't all that ideal. Especially compared to CC.

Not sure, Crystal City was gust an idea. No idea where they are thinking. I was at a conference in Crystal City at the Hyatt Regency and there seemed like there was plaenty of room there and certainly a ton just South of there.

Its all relative. NOVA costs a lot more than the rest of the state too.

Lol. Costs a lot more to who?

And are you saying that the tax revenues coming in to Richmond from NoVA business operations relative to the appropriations going out from Richmond to NoVa are similar to other parts of the state?

I'd love to see that comparison. And I'd be shocked if it is relative.

Yeah, FTL. A lot of folks in VA don't seem to realize just how big and prosperous NOVA is and how important it is to Virginia. Many folks just talk about the traffic! Just like folks out by Roanoke and west have no clue about our ports and military presence and what they mean to Virginia. Or about how good our Monarch basketball team is!

My guess would be Norfolk/Hampton Roads contributes far more to the state than it receives back. Virginia treats HR like a goose that lays golden eggs, while it makes the goose live in squalor and treats it like a step child compared to the rest of the state it funds.

I don't want to go to NOVA but I'll certainly take their tax revenue.

If you read the first post, we were just making sure they were not merging with EVMS.

EVMS is hemorrhaging cash. Hard to see any public institution taking that on right now.

Sentara took the plunge and gave EVMS some solid financial footing;

I don't usually hate on other teams uniform changes, but I am just not a fan of this. Something about the weirdness of the curvy ampersand with the sharp W M just doesn't feel right. Perhaps it will grow on me. I wonder what their fans think

Too bad they didnt do that with strings attached that included closer partnerships with ODU and our nursing students.

What would motivate a competing nursing school to do that?
