Re: “American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia‚Äôs 50th anniversary Celebration with activist Shaun King at ICA

Ronald,

Are you suggesting that only one organization at a time can work to ensure civill liberties on this country? You offer no specifics or alternatives.

What does even mean to be "more free" before 1990 as you ask? Do gay people have the freedom to marry? Do racial minorities have equal rights? Do women have the right to terminate a pregnancy? The ACLU is just one of many organizations who made those freedoms possible. The president and the Republican Party work to undermine this freedoms every day. You don't have to put all of your eggs in one basket to support civil rights.

Re: “Finding His Voice

I wish you had asked him more about working for George Allen. A man who opposed gay marriage, gays in the military, adoption by same sex couples, federal employment protections for gay people and opposition to hate crime bills. I don't know how you can align yourself with someone who things you are not an equal in this society. I guess Reid, Aaron Schock, Roy Cohn, etc. have the $ame compromi$ed $elf-hating ethic$ when it comes to politic$.

Re: “The Black Waffle

Not sure why race need to be injected twice into a story about $12 waffles and $6 milkshakes. Personally, it seems like healthy food, not diabetes fuel, would be a better way to uplift our culture. Good luck guys!

Re: “Sticker Shock:

Great reporting. I'm so tired of the fiscal incompetence and constant increase in taxes from living in the city.

Re: “Authentic and Auspicious

This place is great. The food is delicious, unique and inexpensive. They have also done a great job decorating the place. It's truly a jewel on an otherwise downtrodden section of Midlothian.

Re: “OPINION: Misplaced Priorities

Jake, You miss my point. I don't have an issue with my tax money going to schools and roads at all. I do have an issue with the constant increase. Keep in mind that the meals tax last year was to fund the schools as well. We already pay the highest meals tax in the state. With the major jump in property value this year, the city was already getting increased property tax revenue. On top of that increase, the rate is now going up. That is a triple punch to me. Also, people with kids get a get a tax deduction and I do not.
