Re: “First on Earth

Nice article -- and Beth and her sister Cheryl are still here, and still working to make the world a better place.

Re: “Richmond's Aural History: The 1970s

The picture at the top is from the City Stadium concert, where a stupid attempt to bust a kid for smoking a joint sparked off a riot. Totally un-necessary, since there had been an informal agreement (later denied by authorities) that there wouldn't be any hassles for such trivial crap). At the time, I was working with Richmond Hotline and ADAPTS (Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Training Service), who among other things sponsored the annual Kool-Aid Sunday concerts. We'd set up a customer-service booth at the concert, which had been expected to take care of any problems. Unbeknownst to us, the Richmond Police Department also had a new idea to try out. As a result, Richmond made "the cover of the Rolling Stone", with an iconic photo of a kid gleefully jumping up and down on the roof of an RPD cruiser. (Mind you, I missed the whole thing -- I was in DC at the Impeachment Rally.)

Re: “Switch Voter: A Richmond Businessman Leads a Made-For-TV Brigade of Trumpocrats

He says that he's serious, and will vote for Trump.
It's great that he's voting his conscience, of course . . .
it's just a pity that he's so wrong.

Re: “Poetic Injustice

Thanks for the memories, Dale.
Just to make it 100% accurate, though:
My stuff vanished from Broad, not Grove, and
Rik did indeed live further away from the Village at times. For some while he had an apartment at Sixth and Main (or possibly Franklin), where many fantastic memories were created for many people.
Thanks again.
