Re: “New Bill Mandates Lesson on Consent in Virginia High School Sex Ed Classes

With the dumbing down of America (and Americans) this might be a good thing. And get us away from "your lips say no-no but your eyes say yes-yes." The problem is, and this is a huge problem, is that when you start screwing with a girl's mind she starts thinking later about what she's done and strangely enough wants to ascribe "bad" to it. And blame you for it. Which means you get real careful about who and what you expose your daughter to in her maturing into adulthood. Stop the lasting chaos from some yokel standing up in front of a crowd and trying to shove shame and "buyer's remorse" down people's throats. And then have the audacity to ask them to pay for it. And drive across town for next week's "all over again" parade of misery. Pass the plate.

Re: “Event Pick: Windborne’s Music of David Bowie at Altria Theater

Yes, they mean The Mosque. And those of us who weren't born yesterday have fond memories of that entertainment venue that was all Richmond--The Mosque. Because that's what it looks like. That's the style of construction and one you could never miss even if you tried. And yes, Bowie has passed. But they still like to feel good about themselves on those annual award shows by giving him a prize. That he can never see, feel, nor hear. But it's not for David. It's for the people bestowing upon him the honor. And any audience member who wants to feel good about it. I'm sure there are some out there. Let's Dance.

Re: “Road Trip Food Review: Twisted Pig in Portsmouth Does Roadhouse Right

".....all had lovely smoked flavor." Yes this is where it's at. This is what really validates a BBQ joint. Never could understand why restaurants go bonkers over Brunswick stew. Must be a high profit item. Like fries and sodas. But not the taste. No mention of how many sauces are offered and beside the aforementioned two, "other spicy sauces" keep you guessing. And not necessarily bringing you in. And nothing about the smoker. Or smokers. Do they use the new fangled ones with Red LED readouts or is it the ole fashioned cooker that you have to keep outside? Be great to know, but missing in the article. At least they don't cook the BBQ in a backroom on top of a stove like one BBQ restaurant who took the easy way out does. You either get if from the sauce there or you don't get it at all. But not here. And that's what makes it a go to place.

This is really great news. Long live Ukropt's. And those great tasting bakery goods. Who says you can never go back?

Re: “Local Filmmaker Jesse Vaughan Offers a Humanizing Look at Muhammad Ali’s Last Fight

How about a humanizing look at his daughter on Arnold's (yes, it's now Arnold's) Celebrity Apprentice? At least she didn't hang around long enough to see Boy George lose. The one who should have gotten the prize. But he didn't do a rousting of Arnold's Austrian accent to the old man himself. The other guy did. The one who won. Anyone remember his name?

Re: “The HR Department

Does anyone remember when this cartoon used to be funny. Would have you rolling in the floor? Maybe you used to even search for it? As part of your day? Now, here's hoping a good drenching rainstorm will land on that neon umbrella and finish that dude and the cartoon off for good. Rain dance anyone?

Re: “The HR Department

Does anyone remember when ole Ed had us rolling in the floor? When this cartoon used to be funny? When we would actually look forward to reading it? The only good news is if a good drenching rainstorm were to hit that neon umbrella while that (it) is holding it maybe, just maybe, he would disappear and be gone forever. Rain dance anyone?
