Re: “Checking the Pulse

@ RVALongTimer

Your experience mirrors my own. GRTC assistance was too little and too late. Long time bus riders could not figure out their routes and spent a long working it out with those long suffering drivers.

@Randolph Rider

There is a neighborhood association meeting next week about a new route through Randolph. Parker Agelesto posted about it on Facebook. He can probably give you the details.

Re: “Richmond Symphony’s Three-day Festival of the River Has a Little Something for Everyone

"Ginsburg and her Land Dive Team will meditate in full scuba gear while classically trained woodwind musicians perform a new composition and several divers walk into the river broadcasting live audio"

First that eyesore on Broad street, then colorful Klansmen robes and now this. It's like the ICA is trying to break some kind of record. Maybe the classically trained woodwind section could march into the river wearing scuba gear. Now that WOULD be interesting.

Re: “A Family Mourns

I wonder if Style will spend as much time on the grief of the family of this naked man who was murdered in Petersburg. They won't because hardly anybody cares when a black man is shot by somebody other than a cop.

Re: “Students Take Gun Violence Protest To Virginia State Capitol

Yes all of the 400 to 600 of them as reported by RVAHub. I was there to witness it. I would grant them a generous 800. The hype all week was that 10,000 would attend. State workers were told to say home. Organizers claimed a hopeful 5,000, but facts don't support it. I would encourage Style to examine the absence reports from City and County schools and compare that with the attendance at the rally. Where did all those other kids go? Skipping school is not a heroic activity.

Full disclosure. I support sensible gun control. AR-15s should be banned along with large magazines. I'm in support of all the other reasonable regulations that the Constitution allows.

Re: “OPINION: It’s Past Time That We Changed the Names of Schools Honoring Confederate Leaders

Ms.Wolfe is far from the far left fringe. I don't think you'll see her wearing a mask and rioting in the streets, but this action takes no courage. It is merely jumping on the bandwagon and appearing to take action when this does nothing at all to help RPS children and the real problems they face.

Re: “Local High School Students Are Getting on Board with the National Gun Debate

The NRA nuts must be out in force on this thread. Wayne's pathetic, but well liked comment above being a prime example. That being the case, collecting many dislikes is a badge of honor.
