There’s a fierce professionalism that circulates within the business community of Roanoke with which it takes a while to grow accustomed. And there’s a wonderful juxtaposition that you can only get when covering a deposition in Roanoke. By morning, you’re part of a high-stakes deposition downtown. You break at noon and throw down two chili dogs at the Roanoke Weiner Stand where you stand in line with plaintiff and defense attorneys alike. Then everyone heads back to the deposition as if the Weiner Stand interlude never occurred.
