Re: “If Richmond Is Serious About Replacing the Coliseum, Here's How It Should Be Done

when the Coliseum was built it was a terrific facility.It's gotten old though,is somewhat in disrepair and for most modern events it's just considered too small to hold profitable events in.If we build a new one it HAS to be big enough to attract concerts,maybe even a AHL hockey team.Basketball tournaments.I can remember big time tennis tournaments in there.Just rebuild it big enough to where promoters and teams actually want to go there.

Re: “Richmond Police Chief Considers Return of Project Exile

unfairly targets blacks? How is that? They catch who they catch.The answer is simple.If you don't want to get caught up in it don't carry a gun illegally.Don't do gun crimes.Do things legally and you'll have no problems.

Re: “Sculptor Sanguine After Ashe Statue Deemed Inadvertently Horrifying

All of the people that seem embarrassed by Monument Avenue,why do you think Richmond is of such interest as a tourism site?It's because of our history,and the Civil war was a huge part of that history.Maybe you don't like the fact that it's in our history but you can't erase that part.Personally I am not embarrassed by it and I think the monuments are beautiful sculptures and help make our city unique.I also think the Ashe statue is ugly and out of place.If you're that embarrassed living in the former capital of the Confederacy,move.It's certainly not who we are today but there's no denying it's what we once were.

Re: “The Long Walk

Like some of the others,I question the motivation and stability of folks that would do these things.It's just not necessary to make a spectacle of yourself to get your point across.These folks seem to rely on the shock value of displaying their giant guns in public to make the rest of us feel that this behavior is"normal".Thanks but no,I don't need to be taught by you that this is acceptable.I consider myself to be a Christian gentleman,but I'm not an evangelical.I'm a gun owner and a permit holder,but I don't feel the need to be in everyone else's face about it.I carry,you'd probably never know it,and that's the way it should be.These guys need to get a life.
