Re: “Gov. Northam and VMFA Announce Artist Relief Grants

Ted Higgins, you must be bright to go looking for "real news" at a weekly that doesn't have ONE reporter on staff. Also, this is a blog, where they post things like news releases, I'm sure so they can meet the constant drooling demands of readers who expect news FOR FREE for 24 hours a day.

Don't let me get in the way of all the useless whining though. Just thought I'd point out how stupid it is. Why don't you pay for your news? Same question to all the GOP trolls who comment on here solely for each other. You're all capitalists, right? Pay up, help the free weekly.

Oh wait, crying is more your thing.

Re: “Richmond Is Burning, Again

realist, do you actually even read the articles -- or just get straight to bitching about Style, prob your former employer, given your clear (and sad) obsession with everything they do.

This article was largely written by Va Mercury reporters -- plainly noted at the end.

Maybe ask them about the missing snark between your anonymous crying fits? Maybe?

Re: “OPINION: I’m Obsessed with Trash

Hey Ryan, why don't you whine some more. Maybe that will help.
This looks like a letter or opinion piece someone sent in - it isn't a reported piece by a staff member from what I can tell. That's part of what community papers do is run voices from the community. Instead of more bitching, why don't you do your own piece of "hard-hitting journalism" - OR EVEN BETTER, DONATE SOME MONEY for investigative journalism.

Wait, oh yeah, it's easier to bitch from a distance as if the media chooses not to employ reporters. Maybe you haven't noticed, but you don't pay anything for this or any freebie paper in RVA - yet you expect everything. Does Style even have a staff anymore?
"Truly hard-hitting" criticism from someone with no clue about the state of journalism in his own town. Enjoy your next whine, "Ryan."

Re: “Historical Presence

Realist, seems like you need to be told about shouting into a void.

Yes, we get it. You hate Style Weekly. Why can't you stop reading it then?? Ever notice how you're practically the only one on here, week after week, whining about every nitpicky complaint you can find to cry about? What do you do for a living? Besides post anonymously all the time here?
I say you probably used to work at Style. Your sour grapes are far past putrid stage. Try reading something else, it will be better for your health.

Frankly, Im amazed they even have a comments section anymore when its always only you and native richmonder on here, complaining. Oh, and herpes ads, which are usually less predictable than your posts.

Please, Style, shut it down! Save us from the woe-is-me-rightwing whiners!!! Eech.

Re: “OPINION: Traveling Mayors

A Yeti, you should be embarrassed when you start pecking at a keyboard. You think this is about how conferences work? Or the price of hotels? Oh, "clearly it was appropriate?" Clearly to whom? The Levar Stoney for Lt. Gov. campaign? Haha, wow, indeed.

Re: “Week of Aug. 21

Is there a reason you share your anonymous opinions when nobody cares?

Personally, I imagine it's so the few sad clowns and herpes spammers who loiter in these comment sections can cry themselves to sleep ....

Re: “New Signs, Same Heartbreak

Richmondman, I'm all for adding statues AND for pooping on Confederate attractions.
But I think I understand your argument now. Richmonders should celebrate sad reminders of our horrible past every day, because it puts money in your pocket via tourism.
For a second there, I thought your argument was more aligned with the historian's, which I can at least respect.
But guess what? You could still take the thriving Confederate vacation set to a museum to see the statues if most (or all of them) were moved there. Then you can go drink all the cold microbrews you want and talk to them about the good old days, when only one group's comfort mattered in this city.
I don't think you can really compare the former capital of the Confederacy to European cities that still have beautiful ancient statues of folks who did awful things. Like those who make the argument that they keep history alive, or give Richmond its unique character. The wounds are still too raw, too recent, and the legacy of slavery still too real. Of course, I don't realistically expect all the statues to be moved, we're still far too stuck in the past for any kind of sweeping change-- but maybe one day local people will vote on it, and some progress will be made. Seems like an inevitability.
Funny you should quote Lincoln while calling me a fool. Like him maybe one day you'll at least partly realize your views are morally indefensible and just plain wrong. He at least argued for limited black suffrage by 1865 during his last speech. Capital pigeons are holding out hope for you, Richmondman.

"Many factors contributed to the Civil War. One caused it: slavery," said Ken Burns, adding: "Also, Richmondman, you know nothing of my work, take my name out yo mouth."
