      Gang,

      Am reposting a question asked the other day since not sure if all
      saw it. Thanks for whatever help you can provide.

      To Be A Virginian, either by birth, marriage, adoption, or even
      on one's mother's side, is an introduction to any state in the
      Union, a passport to any foreign country, and a benediction from
      the Almighty God. --Anonymous
