â†µIt should also be noted that Charlie Manuel is actually from West Virginia, a state that was created during the Civil War because of its opposition to the firm, Confederate beliefs of Virginia. Just so we’re clear: Being from W.V. does not, in any way whatsoever, make someone a Virginian. This is not a matter to be taken lightly in the Commonwealth. â†µâ†µ
