Re: “Here's Where You Can Watch the Eclipse in Richmond

Or you could look from your sidewalk or front yard. :-)
Don't have solar eclipse viewing glasses? Use a kitchen colander. The holes at the bottom will act as pinhole cameras. You will get dozens of small crescents in the image. Project the image on a wall or on the ground. Focus it by moving the colander closer to the surface. The holes in the colander must be circular though.

Re: “On Richmond Radio, Christmas Comes Today

And to think some people actually think there is a "war on Christmas" while companies like Summit Media are actually the ones starting a war on common radio sense. Disgusting.

Re: “The Other Race

"“We’re shutting down that week and we won’t be making it up,” Zechini says. “Now, the city won’t be making up the meals tax we would have paid.”"

And with that quote, I promise Zechini I won't spend one dime at his sidewalk carts. Ever. People who are so anti-city are not needed or wanted here.

Re: “Best Choice for Virginia’s Official State Song

"Virginia, the Home of My Heart" was written and sung by local songwriter and singer Susan Greenbaum! It has absolutely nothing to do with "Vanilla lyrics by a New York songwriter". How in the world could you not take a moment and fact-check that?! Could you be more insulting?!
