ON U.S. ROUTE 52 — In southern West Virginia they call this The Highway That Time Forgot, a 100-mile, two-lane stretch of stomach-churning switchbacks and careening coal trucks, clogged by stop-and-start school buses, slow-driving seniors and the random pedestrian.

WikiLeaks release notwithstanding, the CIA isn't hacking — or helping — you WikiLeaks release notwithstanding, the CIA isn't hacking — or helping — you
