» SFB says: Well, sorta local. I started the blog there — and went to FG every day for nearly three years — but eventually I high-tailed it up to DC. Though at the time, I wanted to stay in town. There’s a long story about how SFB started. (There’s a photo of me slinging a guitar in FG in that story.) Since you’re local, if you lived in Hampton Roads long enough to remember when the Virginian-Pilot did Link, its closing was kind of the seed that led to the blog. True story. Diana, the girl in the story, is a good friend of mine. — Ernie @ SFB
