Re: “Opinion: How Safe is a Public Space When Some of Us Feel Nervous Around Open-Carry Weapons?

The writer asks if it would be illegal to ban firearms at City Council meetings.
The answer is, yes, it is. Section 15.2-915 (https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/title1…) of the law says that it is illegal, and that if any government agency tries to do it, they can be sued, and that the agency has to pay the attorneys' fees.
This is just one of the over a hundred laws already on the books. If Mr. Fleisher doesn't know that, and know that many of those violations are already felonies, then why does he think that some city ordinance will help any?

Re: “The 2017 Richmond Power List

"how it effects the city" -- Really, guys? The word for which you're searching is "affects".

Re: “Remembrance: Bob Hardtimes

This was a shock!
Bob was good people, and friends with just about everyone.
We'll miss him.

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.
