Tim Kaine certainly has the right to be against capital punishment, but I hope when it comes to the murderers of the Harvey family, the governor will do everything he can to expedite the execution process.
If the past in any prediction of the future, the killers will spend the next couple of decades writing children's books and doing a radio show for NPR.
I'm Getting Out
Thank you for your great "262 Reasons to Go Out" story (Midseason Arts Issue, Cover Story, Jan. 25). I have always preferred your calendar listing, and you have succeeded in putting together 262 reasons why Richmond is such a great place for exciting things to do. As usual, I will probably hit well over a hundred of these in the next couple months thanks to your listing by date. You have made it so much easier.
Now Who's the Moron?
If you are going to adopt such a condescending attitude toward the natives of that great city to the north of us where Mr. Poe not only died but lived an important part of his adult life and gained his first literary prominence as to refer to them as "Baltimorons" ("Reasons to Love Richmond," Cover Story, Feb. 8), perhaps you could spend some quality proofreading time and spell his name correctly!

Editor's note: Much like a beating heart under the floorboards, we cannot hide our embarrassment. Consider this a correction to the spelling of Edgar Allan Poe's name. Quoth the Raven: "Nevermoron."
