Re: “James Comey's Daughter, Claire Comey, Heads University of Richmond Newspaper

Style covers stories and personalities of local interest. Packfan, Voodoo, Richmonder, et al. This is a local interest story about the daughter of one of the central figures in the DJT investigation. She the Chief editor of the UR newspaper. Why shouldn't Style write about it.

Re: “Capping Carbon: What Does Dominion Think?

It will only enrich the rich. Coal mining jobs will not come back.

Power companies are abandoning coal for much cheaper natural gas and your figures don't include the environmental damage caused by coal mining and the health costs of polluted air. The same goes for oil. They also don't include ongoing and increasing cost of climate change.

Anyone want to guess who "Citizen" is?

Re: “13 Takeaways from the City’s Performance Review

For the most part, the problems at City Hall are not the people working there. Many departments are led and staffed by loyal and dedicated employees. It is hard to maintain staff in an environment of low morale, high turnover and red tape. The problem is with leadership and organization and none of this has improved since the new City Charter was adopted and we had our own local version of Donald Trump running the show, Doug Wilder.

Re: “Richmond wants to double its miles of bike lanes this year. Is that enough to keep cyclists safe?

Bikers must be responsible for their own safety. Around VCU bikers ride at night without lights, in dark clothes. On sidewalks and streets, whichever is more convenient for them. The same can't be said for cars. Since it is your life that is at stake, avoid dangerous roads at night. You may have a right to be there, but riding down River Road after midnight is inherently dangerous and has already taken one life. I tried it during daylight, once. All of which is why we need separate bike lanes. Till then, I'll stick to trails.

Re: “This Historic Building Near the Institute for Contemporary Art Deserved a Better Fate than Parking

I'm not trying to paint VCU as Green. I am saying (as does this article) that this building has some unusual Green features, more than most. I am also saying that it would be good to connect the ICA with Monroe Park via a green corridor. Much better than surface parking lots and a shabby gas station, don't you think?
