Re: “Local Diversity Consultant Tiffany Jana Offers Recommendations for President-Elect Donald Trump

The government stoked the flame of racism? How so?

Hillary used a fake black accent? Who says she did, besides you?

A book on diversity and inclusion, eh? How many ways can one say: You ought to promote diversity and inclusion in your public remarks, and you ought to hire qualified minorities when you can. Rinse and repeat.

Re: “Food Review: The Fancy Biscuit Makes Everything Seem Right With the World

Sorry but that Big Apple biscuit looks absolutely ridiculous. Piling one thing atop another--and always with the fried chicken--doesn't necessary appeal.

Re: “Path of Resistance: Exploring the Sense, Significance and Future of the Richmond Slave Trail

A 9 acre park? That's a lot of space--and what will be put in it that hasn't already been done--in multiple locations? What is there to preserve, exactly? We have the slave trail, we have the new (newly located?) museum, we have monuments. Wonderful. I'm empathetic, but there are only so many ways you can say the same thing.

Re: “Jon Baliles Withdraws From Richmond Mayoral Race

I take back my complimentary message on Baliles after he has now stupidly endorsed Stoney. What is he thinking? A lifelong RVA guy endorses some interloper who has not history in the city? What a horrible decision--and one that smells, too.

Re: “Jon Baliles Withdraws From Richmond Mayoral Race

Berry now is the only logical choice--and the most qualified. Baliles dropped out to damage Morrissey, so I doubt his supporters will go in that direction. Stoney? He's a dilettante with virtually no connection to Richmond--a guy who's never had a real job and who the Dem. Party is trying to foist on Richmond (and I'm a Democrat). As for Berry's corporate connections, so what? Venture Richmond was about soliciting and using corporate money to do good things for downtown Richmond. This notion that you must be suspect because you know Jim Ukrop is comical.

Re: “Jon Baliles Withdraws From Richmond Mayoral Race

That's an impressive, heart-felt note from a man who would be a good mayor--and may yet be next turn of the wheel. Between him and Samuels, we've lost two good, smart, thoughtful city councilmen--and they are valuable in a city such as ours.

Re: “Political Arts: Richmond's Mayoral Candidates Share Their Arts and Culture Platforms

The city is not going to spend more money supporting the arts. As others have noted, it doesn't have the money to do so. The arts have to be supported by private corps and private individuals and the public, by going to shows. Broadway shows are at the Altria, and there are some good ones.
