Re: “Proposed Tax Increases Draw Arts Groups, Musicians and Cigarette Vendors

"Nonprofit arts directors.... also disapproved of the (tax) increase.

They were also there to support amendments giving an additional $117,300 to CultureWorks and $180,000 to performing arts companies that rent space at Altria Theater and Dominion Arts Center."

Sigh. You'd think by the time you reached director, you'd know that the fairy tale money tree doesn't actually exist.

Re: “Richmond's Off the Hookah Will Close in July

No offense to Carmax but this is a terrible business to be putting on the Canal.

Re: “Va. Beach Art Under Fire From Catholic League

We can thank the sjw's for making "offended" a word of empowerment. "I'm offended by X. Thus you must do Y". The Catholic League is right however... the museum would never display a piece considered offensive to Muslims. In the illogical realm of left-wing ideology, Christianity is fair game but mocking most any other religion would be labeled insensitive or prejudiced.

Re: “Hope and a Promise

RATM, those are some excellent ideas. I especially liked the part about keeping these skilled people in the City. The article was overly focused on college tuition. We've completely overrated the bachelor's degree in our country and the ridiculous tuition costs these days reflect that. There's no need to force people into that expensive shoe if it doesn't fit them. Vo-tech is important... we need skilled tradesmen and women. Give young people real choices.

Re: “Reggae Legend Says He's Broke and Depressed After Richmond Injury

Being named Toots, being a living legend, or being a reggae star doesn't make one more important than anyone else. We're a spoiled brat, victim-mentality society that's gone lawsuit crazy because we think anytime something bad happens to us, someone owes us. There's ONE person accountable for Toots getting hit with the bottle and that's the drunken kid. Either punish him or don't... end of story. The comments in here are ridiculous. If this was a country musician that got hit with a bottle at a party thrown by Style, I promise most of you would be singing an entirely different tune. You're opinions aren't founded in principle. They are founded in politics.

Re: “The Richmond Crime Almanac

I was shocked, SHOCKED I say to notice that Style thought it important to highlight the racial makeup of the police department but not that of crime perpetrators and victims.

Re: “Reggae Legend Says He's Broke and Depressed After Richmond Injury

Facts matter... so what I hear you saying is he didn't want to punish the person who was actually responsible for hitting him with the bottle, he just wants money from an organization that is unrealistically expected to be responsible for the protection of every single person at said event from drunken stupidity? I'm sorry.. if this guy drank too much and punched me in the face I could make the same argument. I'd NEVER consider going after a party organizer for the actions of one person. It's simply unethical.
