Re: “Cat Cafes Coming to Virginia

Saw her on Shark Tank. Mr. Wonderful was hoping the cafe would be on a third floor so he could throw the cat out the window. Yes. And what she and what the article doesn't mention is that something is coming to that cafe with the cats. From the cats. T. gondii or as most of you probably have heard, just plain toxoplasmosis. And, yes, it does get passed on from cats to humans. Toxoplasmosis has been linked to 'Crazy Cat Lady' Syndrome as it alters brain and behavior. Now, all this Toxo talk has got to be upsetting the trailer park folks. Who feel compelled to make a negative comment. Here or there.

Re: “Mark Warner Speaks Out on Possible Russian Election Tampering

Again with this woman's track record in Libya we can understand any country that would want the election to go the other way. For self survival. And that "far from the political center" is what the people voted for. You have four (4) years to understand this. And, Mark, let's talk about why that Afghanistan War is in it's 15th year and those internet sites who claim this is because OUR soldiers must guard the poppy fields to keep the flow of heroin pouring into the US for CIA and NY banker profits. Some first hand info on this. But no one wants to talk about it. And that the Taliban had all but eradicated the problem. Until we got involved. Yep, Mark, someone in Washington's got some 'splainin to do.

Re: “Opinion: The Portrait in the Attic

A very fair article on a Judge who called the shots within the time they occurred as he saw them. Yes, he uprooted a construction worker's life. And established precedent setting law, even if that law did not end as he would have preferred. Those familiar with the case will be interested in those named as amicus curiae in the brief. Not those I would sit at the same table with. But they happened to be on the winning side. Of the case, that is. And those who whine against those opposing the law conveniently forget Congress' blatant error in later creating statutory language known as the Violence Against Women Act--an Act that is highly unconstitutional as it flies in the face of the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment. And that such an Act never was necessary, never would have been necessary, until Loving v. Virginia saw daylight. But you're not supposed to think this, are you? And when the case is reduced to name calling by those so under-educated and accustomed to losing, themselves, we see a victory of sorts among those who cannot offer any more cogent argument than this.

Re: “Triple Crossing Brewing Co. to Open in Fulton on Friday

Sounds mighty similar to Malcolm's Double Cross vodka. But you three dudes should take a lesson from Dr. Vodka. Stay out of $400,000 Lamborghinis. Those going 120mph. And that dude stopped at a traffic light. No, he wasn't going anywhere. But home. Did not make it. Nor did Dr. Vodka. 42yrs is too young to die. And this was just a side line for Malcolm. Even though Goldman Sachs named Malcolm one of the top 100 innovators in the US. Who was a Johns Hopkiins and Dartmouth grad and also an accomplished physician who ran cardiovascular clinical trials for pharmaceutical companies. So Malcolm got planted, Andres who had a BAC .173 got four years (and sued by Malcolm's wife), and Raul, who shouldn't have been sitting in his SUV at that traffic light, finally got released from the hospital.

Re: “Representative-Elect Donald McEachin Says He’s Ready to Wade Into the D.C. Swamp

That's good advice, Mark. Focus on Richmond. Now, let's hope that DC Swamp has one or two choice alligators. Or crocodiles. The big toothy kind. Caimans. All carefully Eachin their way to neophyte political prey. On the Hill. Yes, the Mick is missing on that Eachin. He's over in England. And lastly, I'm probably not the only one reminded of Tame Impala's song--New Person, Same Old Mistakes, covered by Rhianna in her 2016 ANTI album. Anyone else want to dance to this? And, no, I won't go Joe above by saying "he appears to be soft spoken" for it's only there if we know it. And it looks like we don't.

Re: “The Palace in Ginter Park

And while everybody agreed they didnt want us to sell, none of them wanted to take this on. It is always unfortunate when generations take a new turn and the past must die while living on in the life of a new owner. Still the same place but never the same as the family that made it. Wouldn't it be great if the 19th Century Fluvanna farmhouse became a weekend retreat and the family decided to remain at the Brook Rd mansion? As in cancelling plans to sell? Where subsequent generations could continue to enjoy the family's rich history and elegant living.

Re: “Plan Emerges for a Residential Tower on Grace Street

I'm betting those inspections and permits will be swiftly approved before the developers change their minds and plans. This IS downtown Richmond. Deep in the bowels of what the nice folk call "urban living." And how about it? Would YOU want to live in downtown Richmond? Is it all cleaned up yet? Probably not. A nighttime stroll could test it out. And your courage. And your running prowess as in keep those adidas handy. For that nighttime stroll.
