Re: “Working Lunch: Chairlift at Brenner Pass

Such a beautiful succulent sandwich that will start many of us back to eating breakfast. A picture is worth a thousand words. And those words say EAT. And enjoy.

Re: “400 Years

Here we go again. The old VMFA is now the new VMFAA but thinks your money, your donations, will still keep rolling in. Boycott them. Not Richmond. Not Virginia. Not us.

Re: “New Signs, Same Heartbreak

Richmond's population base will take note of VMFA's apology for fulfilling their role in preservation regarding United Daughters. And "chapel events" at that. I urge past and current donors to re-channel your gifts away from VMFA to more suitable and accountable causes that won't cast a black eye at Richmond's and Virginia's historical presence. Anytime a museum drifts off course and does it "their way" a wake up call is needed.

Re: “What Remains

Cindy may have chosen to check out but we see it differently with Mick and his new body and Ronnie climbing the ladder out of his throat cancer. And taking those verbal licks from Keith for giving up cigarettes. Life is what you make it. And the will to keep it chipper and on the mend.

Re: “OPINION: Understanding History

Another reason Reform Judaism trumps Conservative. We all would like to think the Rabbi has the capacity to think this through in that Jews were not the problem. To compare German Jews with America's invaders from the southern hemisphere is more than disingenuous. It's plain foolish. It may be time for the Rabbi to move on. Hopefully the Beth-El folks will think this through and agree. Needing attention is one thing. Writing a screed such as this is something else and reflects poorly on the Temple.

Re: “A True Champion

Guess what Paul, Kim, and Chelsea? They did it the way they wanted to. Letting y'all know who's in charge and who's doing the doing. Now it's done.

Re: “VMFA Purchases Historic Kehinde Wiley Monument Based on Confederate Statue

To those of you who see this as an unsettled direction VMFA has embarked upon, I urge you to reconsider your donations and to apply your monies elsewhere. Where those monies will do more good. Elsewhere that makes no mockery of Virginia history and does not even attempt to redefine that which is indisputable history of our forefathers and our respect for them as to where we have come. The biggest issue here is Valerie Oliver and realizing that one's fit for any position reflects on the institution she represents. A better fit would be the Black History Museum at the Leigh St. Armory in Jackson Ward. But could Valerie get along with Museum Director Adele Johnson? And would Adele agree that Valerie would be a better fit under (Adele's) command as a subordinate? Could Valerie take orders from Adele? It's unique that Adele says she's gotten younger, feels younger, after moving downtown. And Adele and her husband enjoy eating out so Valerie you may run into them at some of Richmond's finest restaurants. Unlike VMFA, the Black History Museum is not a horse with blinders having accepted (with "some" discussion) a KKK robe now on display. My vote goes for Adele and her fit for the Black History Museum having come out of retirement to accept the position. Certainly beats that of a former program specialist grants administrator which I equate as a grunt performing assembly line tasks. Right, Valerie? Get with it VMFA. The time is now. To make those changes that will ensure your respect in our community. There are those who make things happen, there are those who watch things happen, then there are those who wonder what happened.
