Re: “Richmond City Jail Abruptly Ends Its Much-Praised Yoga Program

I've always admired the generosity with which Robbie shares the gift of Ashtanga yoga. The shadiness that surrounds the termination of the yoga classes certainly invites the interpretation that some other agenda existed. The timing, the hollow justification, the competing interests all scream of wrong doing. It certainly damages perceptions of the way the jail treats people, inmates and volunteers alike. The volume of supportive comments here speaks to the importance of Robbie's work to the community. In a state that is the worst in the country in feeding jails directly from schools, the Virginia corrections system certainly should not be depriving inmates of a tool that hurts no one, costs nothing, and has the power to change lives for the better.

Re: “Brand Wringing

So roll over and let UT have it because you don't think it's worth fighting over? Please, I find that smacks of fear and laziness. That attitude certainly won't win any championships..."sure let them have the ball. It might get ugly if we resist"...said no champion team ever.
