Re: “City Council's Surprise Vote Was Legal, City Attorney Says

Just because it was legal doesn't make it right.

Re: “Early Bird Biscuit Co. Opens in the Fan

Having had Early Bird in shouting distance was a very welcome circumstance and I'm bummed that it will be farther away, but with that said I 'm thrilled for Tim and his team that they will have a bigger space to grow the business. This is the kind of business that is easy to support. I guess I'll just have to get up a little earlier to drive south instead of north! Congrats Tim!

Re: “Remembrance: Michael Ripp

My heartfelt condolences to you and the rest of Michael's family, Angela. I've had the pleasure to enjoy the fruits of his labors and the benefit of his professional hospitality. He definitely left Richmond a better place. My thoughts and prayers to you all.

Re: “Best Place to Buy Wine

I think you point out exactly why hitting your local, independent wine shop, whether it's Once Upon a Vine, or Wine Lovers, or J. Emerson, is the best option here. You can work directly with a knowledgeable employee to find the appropriate bottle from a well-curated selection.

Re: “Smoke Screen

The prior two comments allude to one of the complexities with this issue, and the author does the same, but right now there is no cheap alternative to coal as an energy source. The costs needed to bring a commensurate amount of megawatts online arising from renewable sources (wind, solar, biomass, etc.) would have us all paying much, much more for our power. So far the only solution presented (or at least that I can recall) is a carbon tax, which would increase the cost of fossil fuels to a level similar to that of renewables. Now that tax may help to recognize the negative externalities (pollution, etc.) inherent in the use of coal and natural gas. The upshot, however, is that the KwH rate we all pay would go up and such increases would hit the least fortunate among us. Unless we are ready to massively subsidize the use of renewable energy or the power bills of a large swath of the citizenry then we will likely be stuck with the status quo until there is the next technological breakthrough or economies of scale exist to bring down the KwH rates for renewable energy sources.
