Re: “Dave Brat’s Syllabus: Richmond’s Professor Turned Congressman Writes a Book

Don't we send people to Congress, not to write books, but to, um, legislate? This "tome" is just more right-wing sewage from yet another smooth-talking grifter, which happens to be the last thing any of us needs. Sure didn't take Brat long to figure out the system, he should be good for at least 5 or 6 more terms, doing absolutely nothing but depositing our tax dollars into his bank account until the next shyster comes along. Oh, the purity of the tea baggers is truly something to behold!

Re: “Opinion: 40 Years Later, Here's Why I'm Rooting for Regency Square Mall

We're big on monuments here in River City. Turn it into one commemorating our long-gone middle class and the post-war Golden Age of American Consumption. "Shop 'til you drop", the good old days.

Re: “Opinion: How Redskins Football Pushed Richmond's Schools to the Breaking Point

Northside to SouthsideRVA: Are you kidding me, Scott's Addition is booming in part because of the Redskins? You haven't got a clue, brother. I live up here, and that training camp is all but invisible. Might want to direct your "opinion" to something you know about. Scott's Addition doesn't qualify.

Re: “Last Gasp: What Richmond's Future Holds in the Final Days of a Lame-Duck Mayor

Fester, yes the race attracted global eyeballs, yes the global chatter continues to chatter and yes a few streets got fixed, but it did not fundamentally change any of the structural problems facing us. And that was my point. Fix those first. All the Italian love in the world is meaningless when 40% of our kids live in poverty.

Re: “Last Gasp: What Richmond's Future Holds in the Final Days of a Lame-Duck Mayor

Jones and his administration pretty much danced to their own tune, disregarding or ignoring basic civic needs in favor of bright shiny projects, none of which benefited important constituencies for the long term. The bicycle race was a perfect example. Here today, gone tomorrow, with no lasting impact. It was the putting the cart before the horse. You host an international bike race AFTER you've got your house in order, not before the schools are fixed and the streets paved and public transportation up to speed and serious progress made on poverty. Anyway, the next "strong" mayor must work more collaboratively with City Council, the School Board, regional economic power brokers and yes, even the surrounding counties with a focus on improving the overall quality of life for all Richmonders. After all, he or she will be just the mayor, not a king or a queen.
