Re: “Jon Baliles Withdraws From Richmond Mayoral Race

Baliles is a good man; Morrissey should follow his example and withdraw.

Re: “Architecture Review: Kanawha Plaza Reopens With a Welcomed Cleaning and Makeover

I think Kanawha Park will re-establish itself as an important place for Richmond's homeless. With Monroe Park closing soon for renovations, Kanawha might be a logical alternative for weekend feeding programs, especially now that there are places for food trucks.

I still wish that there were better shelters of last resort and that the homeless would not sleep in parks in winter time.

Re: “Opinion: Sorry "Pet Parents," But Your Animals Are Not Your Children

I think a better column would have been one telling parents not to treat their children like animals. #priorities

Re: “Joe Morrissey Takes Command

This is how Trump won the Republican nomination: too many ambitious people splitting the mainstream vote, thus allowing a fringe candidate to win with a plurality.

Hopefully some of the candidates with little money or support will do the mature thing and withdraw. If not, we'll be treated to the spectacle of Fightin' Joe chasing interns around City Hall for four years.

Re: “Relocation Explored for Doomed Tree at Maggie Walker Memorial Site

I think we need to consult actual tree movers with the proper equipment. It's simple enough: ask for their opinion on practicality and bids to do the work. If it's practical and affordable (perhaps crowd source fund-able) we can proceed, if not, well cut the tree down if necessary.

People who don't want to get this information before making a decision are just intellectually lazy.

Look at this machine move a much larger tree. The capability exists and should be explored.…

Re: “Richmond’s Homeless Search For Relief From the Heat

I'd have a lot more respect for "TANSTAAFL" if they had the courage to post under their own name.

Again, I believe that the city needs to find real housing for homeless people. Letting people sleep in parks is not a safe or sustainable solution.

If we must have camping as a shelter of last resort, the city should designate a location as an "urban campground" and provide bathrooms and a police substation to protect those who sleep there.

Monroe Park should not be a shelter of last resort.
