OK, now how is it that this APRIL FOOL'S story can be pretty much free of errors (though I don't know what in the he77 that third paragraph is trying to say), but the REAL news looks like it was written by an elementary school student?
ARE you smarter than a fifth grader, WLTX?

I just wanted to say that I thought this was a great hoax for April Fool's Day. You had me going until the part where the government was going to rename it "South Virginia." When I read that I knew something was wrong. Great Job WLTX. I enjoyed the laugh.

I can't believe this. Where would the state capitol be located? Tell me something. I don't think this is going to work out. Stanford and that NC Governor need to talk about the housing problems, food and gas crisis. Here come the pigs.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
