Welcome to Hollywood, Virginia!





"What's your dream? Everybody comes here; this is Hollywood, land of dreams. Some dreams come true, some don't; but keep on dreamin' - this is Hollywood. Always time to dream, so keep on dreamin'.


You know the scene from Pretty Woman? Where "The Happy Man" walks the streets uttering this famous line.   Well lets get to the Bling! Bling! of this post!

Well, Virginia "The Happy Man" has come to Virginia! Special guest of Gov. Kaine, Senator Webb,  Senator Warner and your Democratic House of Representatives! 

Submit your dreams here: Stimulus.Virginia.Gov

Some 1500 submissions already and growing! (projected Stimulus funding for Virginia is projected in the $3b range).

Amazing if you can Dream It, Its in here!
-  Legalization of marijuana
- $6b for education
- Illegal aliens
- Nature Trails from Nowhere to Nowhere
- Green Garages for those Green cars that don't exist
- It just goes on, and on!

I am all for NOT accepting any monies from this stimulus package as there is still no plan how the government whether Federal or State really plans to fight this recession. Actually, there are several such suggestions submitted to SEND THE MONEY BACK!  Till I see a well defined, coordinated effort at both the Federal and State levels, I feel this is a disaster that helps no one in the long run. But since this is Hollywood Virginia, you go ahead and Dream that Dream!

But my favorite recommendation comes from Alexandria, just shows there is still some intelligence in Alexandria! 

Giant Friggin Map: I think we should build a giant friggin map of Virginia. Like, a life sized map. I know what you are thinking, where would we store this giant map of virgina since it will be as big as virgina we won't have anywhere to store it. Well, how about Maryland, no one likes Maryland except for my buddy Sung. Maybe we could cut a hole out of the map so he could still live in his apartment and have wii parties.
