Re: “OPINION: Something Has to Give

Inbred, I gotta call BS here. Gray and Larson were a vocal minority pushing reform of our facilities. Truth is, however, that if you dont have five votes, you got bupkis. Nothin. Had it not been for their efforts, we would not even have a document detailing the deficiencies in the buildings. How many times did you appear before the SB and speak out about the deplorable conditions of our buildings?

Re: “Team Stoney Should Let the Redskins Deal Drop and Demand Accountability

Here are a couple of what ifs ... WHAT IF the City takes the Redskins/Bon Secours Training Facility and the adjacent fields on Leigh St. and gives them to RPS that for a new school? WHAT IF RPS would then give the Arthur Ashe Building over on the Boulevard (and close to Scotts Addition) to the City for future business development? WIN/WIN? Maybe the schools could even rent the Leigh Street training facility and grounds using the same kinda math that the City did when it leased the Westhampton Building to Bon Secours? Hmmmmm ...

Re: “Opinion: Federal Recognition of Native Americans is Needed to Prevent Cultural Extinction

First things first: Many thanks to the authors of this Back Page and to Style Weekly for bringing this information forward. Now, @gjosephmyers: I respectfully submit that neither the authors of this piece nor Senators Kaine and Warner made any error. Pls. Re-read the text in question. "In a recent email, Kaine elaborated on the situation faced by Virginia’s tribes: “Only the Pamunkey, who have a reservation that they can prove was granted to them in the 1600s, have finally been able to get the [Bureau of Indian Affairs] to acknowledge them,” he said. “We have gotten the bill out of committee and it is now pending on the floor. So we are looking for an opportunity to get it passed and over to the Senate.” FIRST you get the bill out of committee and THEN you get it before the full Senate. Should the bill survive a full Senate vote, it will then be sent to the House.

Re: “Freedom Follies

The real issue here is not about former CAO Byron Marshall. Dwight Jones is not protecting Marshall -- he is protecting himself. It is high time that someone in City Hall who knows what the score is to find the courage to speak out. If they don't want to risk losing their jobs, perhaps they could simply mail this information to Carol Wolf at Style Weekly? She sounds like a "real reporter" who will know what to do with this information and is someone who will protect their sources. Time to tell the truth ... will someone, anyone, in City Hall have the integrity and courage to tell us what is happening?

Re: “The Goldman Touch

Pity, 1Ronald, even an RPS student has better reading comprehension than your comment demonstrates. The point of the article is to a) given credit where credit is due and b) thank Goldman for what he did and continues to do on behalf of Virginia and the City of Richmond. Any more questions?

Re: “Gag Me

Excellent. Once again, Carol Wolf proves she isn't afraid to stand up for what is right and speak the truth.
