Re: “Howell Now

I always admire Mr. Slipek's articles on Richmond architecture, but in this case he might want to check the history facts on the Empire/November theater a little closer.
Prior to the theater fire in 1927, the Strand had already installed some film projection equipment. After the fire, its facade was not "stripped of ornament." In fact, even after it was renamed the "Booker-T" the facade looked almost identical to the pre-fire Strand with it's ornamentation intact, which included some fanciful Baroque imbellishment not seen in the November Theater restoration. According to most sources, the "moderne" re-styling of the Booker-T facade was executed in the 1950s.

Re: “Mookie’s Wanderings End

Goodbye, Mookie. Sad to see you go as you were a part of my neighborhood for many years. Your friendliness and carefree spirit symbolized what has made the Museum District beloved by those who live there.
You lived a long and happy life YOUR way -- surely the envy of any cat! And you taught us about what a "friendly neighbor" should be.
Rest now and peace be with you, Mookie, as you live on in the happy memories of all who came to know you.
