Re: “The 2016 Power List: Food and Drink

I miss Highway 55 in the Far West End that never happened. As a low budget franchise fee ($25,000) it could easily become a reality of bringing in frozen custard and those to die for pimento cheddar burgers. And other goodies too numerous to mention. Chicks and dudes at VA TECH know what I'm talking about as well as one also deep in the inner city at the ocean.

Re: “The 2016 Richmond Power List: Politics

Levar has the Big Money behind him which is supposed to win him the election. Supposed to. And Joe has the people behind him, the ones who will cast the votes to decide the winner. If I was a betting person, I'd go with Joe. That "Joe will fight for you" is more than just a slogan. The man does what you expect him to do, what you need him to do (sometimes desperately) and that should pay off in the Mayoral election.

Re: “Event Pick: 2016 Gwar B-Q at Hadad’s Lake

Nothing about the food. This is a BBQ, isn't it? Apparently not.

Re: “Behind the Scenes at VCU's $41.2 Million Institute For Contemporary Art

$41.2 million seems like a lot of money. And it is. But public school renovation costs nearly the same with some new schools topping $70 million of that ever flowing reservoir of taxpayer monies. And we are deeply grateful to Bill and Pam's support as benefactors for the project. But, as with most public access institutions including businesses, we can bet that back door will eventually be secured for Emergency Use Only as neighborhoods--even those in the throes of regentrification--can wreak havoc on the original purpose of being there. And, as the front porch of VCU, recalling that Oregon Hill stopped the Westward HO movement, we have a much needed clean up of the area. Recalling when car dealerships morphed the area it was always a dusty with cars zooming on Belvidere. In fact, Howard Hughes--Mad Man Dapper Dan Would Give Them Away But His Wife Won't Let Him and also his Haig Jamgochian's Moon House now demolished--wouldn't recognize the place now. ICA makes Pollock seem so yesterday.

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

Hey, folks. Wouldn't you love to have Devon wash those restaurant dishes--your favorite dining spot? No mention of which restaurant that is. If it exists. But, just think. Ole Devon washing dishes, those dishes, your dishes. Before you devour that filet mignon, that 2 lb. lobster, a luscious crab norfolk swimming in real butter. In that dish. The one Devon washed. After construction. After Monroe Park. Uhhhhh. And about Dooley. That gathering place on E. Franklin. A library to the rest of us. You old codgers might remember when this wasn't a problem. But it is now. Has been for many years. No, we don't want them there.

Re: “Opinion: Tim Kaine Owes Virginia an Explanation About Jens Soering

This is not reporting. It is not an article. It is OPINION. See it? The first word in the headline. OPINION. It is not fact. Nor should we accept it as fact. It's what Kerry thinks. And only what Kerry thinks. Her opinion. And that's it. Beyond that we have a right to disagree with this OPINION piece. And I do. Get this snake out of here. Of course Dirty Bob wants him to stay in jail at taxpayers' expense. In fact ANYONE but Bob himself belongs in jail. BUT. Kaine's statement "Virginians have paid for his incarceration for a very long time — let the Germans pay to keep this guy” is fiscally responsible (have we forgotten what that is?) and has Virginia taxpayers' best interests. We need to move beyond "going for blood" and reduce the prison load in the best possible way so as to free this expense to build roads, bridges, and highways that are badly needed. Anyone travel I-95 over the weekends? This past Saturday? I thought the unwashed masses go home on Sundays.

Re: “The 2016 Richmond Beer Issue

Glad this is over. Now we can look forward to more meaningful issues with more meaningful topics. Yes, I know some like this. And to that end an entire issue was satisfying. To them.
