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.

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

What is the obsession with some people to turn our parks over to homeless people? They are homeless, not parkless. We need to find sustainable ways to house people so they don't have to sleep in parks.

The people who expend all their energy helping people live in parks would do well to direct some of that energy towards finding permanent housing solutions instead, then our parks can go back to being parks, and not shelters of last resort.

Re: “In Richmond's Blue Mayoral Race, Only Five Candidates Are Running as Democrats

Charlie Diradour is a well-liked member of the Richmond City Democratic Committee and has been for many years. The reason he isn't mentioned in the list above is that he is running for City Council, not Mayor, and this article is about the mayoral race.
