Re: “After the Bike Race: City Hall's Unfinished Business

It is surprising to me that no one has mentioned how difficult it is to be a small business owner in this city. Shocking! The city sets up unnecessary roadblocks to small businesses in a way that seems near sinister. The cost of running a city is offset tremendously by business within the city. No small businesses, no potholes filled or new schools.Get it Folks?!?

Re: “Richmond Is Now An Asthma Capital and Doctors Say Schools Are Part of the Problem

This sounds like more crap to talk about as part of the 'doing something' about the schools smoke screen. Why don't we just fix the darn schools?

Re: “Richmond’s Poverty Problem: Lots of Attention, But Pinpointing Progress is Difficult

It is not a reasonable argument ot say that reducing costs will fix poverty. Humbug! People needs access to education and jobs. I won't go into 'creating dependency' because half the ears Would close... It is a huge problem, not only in public housing areas, for people to be able to get jobs. And yes the road is a long economic recovery that includes job numbers increasing all over the country. That is national policy. As far as RVA is concerned institutional racism needs to be talked about from both sides of the black / white canyon in this city. Expecting the counties to participate is in that conversation is ridiculous. Generally, the most liberal people of this area live in the city's boundaries. Maybe a real discussion on why the people stuck in poverty whom are mostly African American would be helpful. BTW... both sides need to get honest about their negative contribution to the mess. The blame game needs to stop!!!!
