Re: “Virginia ACLU Criticizes Richmond Police for Trump Rally, Black Lives Matter Protest

And kudos to the author, Peter Galuszka, for publishing this "publics' right to know." And why this mess keeps occurring, recurring, ad nauseum. You've got cops getting shot down dead right and left all over the USA. And ACLU's Claire Guthrie Gastanga wonders aloud why cops at the Trump rally had black tape on their badges. Duh??? Hey, don't snicker, this woman might get to represent you in court someday. And she's worrying about WHERE the troublemakers can and can't go. On the taxpayers' dime. Yes, it's costing us. That extra police protection at an event where Gastanga is there to stir things up. THAT'S why ACLU has the loony reputation of being every where they don't need be and NO WHERE when you need them. SSDD.

Re: “Virginia ACLU Criticizes Richmond Police for Trump Rally, Black Lives Matter Protest

"There was confusion about her letter. It had been posted on the ACLU website July 20 but was taken down shortly afterwards. “We wanted to make sure we have our facts right,” says She said the letter will be reposted." Is that "she" the ACLU "Director?" Is this the quality of legal representation ACLU is getting these days? Knee jerk reaction, changing her mind, thinking it over some more, and then maybe getting it right the second time? Well you can forget making Law Journal. The big deal for this UVA law grad (did I say that? did I REALLY say that?) must be something else. Maybe taunting that bastion of civility and public safety known as the police. Ok, Claire. Let's raise the closed fist. That closed fist. High where we can all see it. And wonder what Kent must be thinking. About now.

Re: “Review: Eddie Izzard at the Carpenter Theatre

Is there anyone who could ever forget this genius, Eddie, in the CBS series The Riches? With Minnie Driver as his wife and their 3 kids. The hot teen raging hormonal teen daughter, the older son who couldn't stay out of trouble and the younger cross dressing son--sometimes the boy was male and then other times....... Never a dull moment. All ruled by the gypsies they escaped from. Who hunted them down. And wanted a piece of the action. And the law firm. That law firm. Eddie taught all of us how to be a lawyer--a good lawyer--by winging it without any law school education whatsoever. Few stumbling moments, but Eddie always shined through. And that huge black S class Mercedes that a law firm earns you. Yes both Eddie and Minnie were shocked that CBS cancelled the series. Some funny business going on here and it wasn't the actors doing it. A lesson in how a DOA lawyer starts a series. And what happens next when Eddie and family "happen" upon him dead as dead can be.

Re: “VP Courtship: How a Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine Ticket Might Work

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I'll run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Tainted love (oh)
Tainted love

1991 today.

Re: “Richmond Grocery Aftershocks From the Martin's-Publix Deal

Isn't it great when they can come in and cherry pick the stores? The ones they want? And disregard others that aren't as appealing. Business is all about location. And demographics. But the losers here are the neighborhoods that will be left with no viable option, such as the Ashland Martin's. Feeding a neighborhood and a college town. But Publix does not see a fit here.

Re: “Opinion: American Men Need to Stop Dressing Like Overgrown Toddlers

Yes, we're inundated with those "below the knee shorts and untucked T-shirts." People seem to enjoy looking like bums. Slobs. Or dressing like "lesser beings" dress. Feeling good about yourself means hiking those shorts up. Like they used to be. Like they were for years. Until. And about those tees. How much effort does it take to shove that bottom inside the shorts, the pants? Sure you want to look like no one tells you what to do. Or how to dress. But how you present to the world is a measure of how you feel about yourself. And your capabilities. People who are their own person dress with a sense of presence and do not need to look like the unwashed masses. And then there are those who simply don't care.

Re: “Interview: Sandwiches That Will Change Your Life (Or Not)

Most of us got lost after reading " “Fry the squid. I don’t even know what it means to be a chef anymore.” His editor steps in: “Sorry, Tyler’s not feeling well." Funny, sort of. But not the reason we buy cookbooks.
