Tom Jackman is a native of Northern Virginia and has been covering the region for The Post since 1998. In 2011 he launched The State of NoVa blog, a state strictly defined as the boundaries of four counties and one city: Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William and Alexandria. It's a state of 2.2 million diverse and dazzling people, in every setting from the densely packed apartment complexes of Alexandria to the great wide open of western Loudoun. It's not like DC, it's not like Maryland, and it sure ain't like the rest of Virginia. Tom works out of The Post's Fairfax bureau and welcomes all story ideas and suggestions at email@example.com. Do it now, while you're thinking about it.
