  1. No, it's not a term for the latest financial trick that will blow the next trillion-dollar hole in our economy, but rather an old nickname for the capital of West Virginia, which often changed in the early years of the state. Wheeling was the first stop for the "floating capital" in 1863. Posted by: Anonymous on Dec 03, 2009 (0) (0)
