1. CAMPAIGN 2013:

One bony fish becomes a metaphor for one state's politics

Old Dominion politicos traveling to rural Wakefield, Va., today for the commonwealth's premier political event probably would be surprised to learn that the American shad that they'll be eating at the 65th annual Shad Planking festival weren't caught in Virginia waters. As it has for nearly 20 years, all of the fish that will be nailed to wooden planks and cooked over an open fire today came from across the border in North Carolina. That's because the North Carolina shad are easier to come by these days, thanks to tight fishing restrictions that have been placed on the Virginia variety. But like so much else about Shad Planking, the 360 North Carolina American shad that arrived in Wakefield from the Tar Heel State yesterday can be taken as a sign of the times.
