Re: “Opinion: 40 Years Later, Here's Why I'm Rooting for Regency Square Mall

I miss O'Brienstein's and the Magic Pan, and wasn't there an O'Farrells or some kind of pizza or ice cream emporium where the staff had to wear striped jackets and straw hats?

Re: “Southern Season to Close

Upscale gift shop in a working class neighborhood, cooking classes for people who have no time to take cooking classes, restaurant with no identity and no entrance except through the store, things you would never buy unless you needed a gift for a society bridal shower. What were they thinking? Cracker Barrel would have done better at this location, with same theme except blue collar: restaurant you access by passing through a lobby full of quirky gifts

Re: “Tacky Light Tours: 30 Years Ago, Barry “Mad Dog” Gottlieb Changed Christmas in Richmond Forever

It was a pretty amazing turn-around for this town, considering when I first moved here, no one did anything but a single white candle in every front window.

Re: “Off the Wall

Finally, an attractive mural! Not a comic book horror doodle. Let women take the lead from now on.

Re: “Flash Forward

Where do I park to get on the bus at Willow Lawn? Is this only for people who don't own cars? Are they the choice riders? Because now I park at the Glenside Park and Ride and take the No. 18 to Willow Lawn to get the 6, but even if the driver SEES YOU RUNNING TOWARD HIM WAVING AND YELLING, he will not stop unless you are standing at the exact bus stop. If you miss the No. 18 by 2 seconds, it is an hour before the next one. So rapid transit is no help if I am waiting an hour to get the bus to get to the rapid transit station. Wouldn't eliminating half the No. 6 bus stops along its route accomplish this same thing, get you downtown faster? We don't need a stop at every corner, not even every other corner. It is insane that I can get off the No. 6 on the right side of the Science Museum, or the left side of the Science Museum. There's a stop at both corners!
