Re: “Proposed High-Rise Condos Offer River Views to Some, Will Block Others

It looks like a Myrtle Beach high rise...what are we going for here? I am pro development but not pro - ugly, un-thought out, and uncomprimising development. Richmond can do much better.

I believe if you're not growing, you're dying - but there must be some boundaries..

Re: “Giant Confederate Flag to Welcome Visitors to Richmond

So the U.S. flag simply stands for all the terrible things it has been a part of? Thats it? The treatment of Native Americans, the Huge profits the Northern shipping industry made transporting slaves from Africa only to shove them down to the south where they would be worked into the system. A system that at one point in time was evident in almost every western nation? It was no doubt a terrible institution but to claim that the Confederacy simply stands - no questions asked- for oppression and racism, is absurd. Unless that is you feel the same way about our own U.S. flag. - 3 out of 4 confederate soldiers didn't own slaves and there were many free blacks at the time of the war, many of which even fought for the Confederacy.

- I don't see the benefit or real purpose of spending money to fly a flag over the interstate. but if so many people are ashamed with the Confederate flag are they not ashamed with the U.S. flag for the same reasons as well?
