Restoring the peace

The escalating bloodshed and death toll in Richmond is alarming, its latest dead and wounded ranging in age from 9 to 57.

What to do?

Our media colleagues should stop their mewling over the absence of Democratic candidates Ralph S. Northam, Justin Fairfax and Mark Herring from the annual Labor Day parade in Buena Vista.

Trump and the Dreamers

President Trump continues to show us just what type of person he is.

Moving forward

Monday was Aug. 28, an innocuous date. But blurbs about its history and meaning have been circulating on the internet. On this day:

Dispelling the darkness

The darkness of the tragic events in Charlottesville — and President Trump’s continued blessing of the racist, anti-Semitic, neo-Nazi, white supremacist elements seeking to tear apart this nation — have cast a pall over our state and country. We have ...

Health care fight

Republican efforts to dismantle health care in this nation are not over, despite the setback handed to the GOP leadership earlier this week. On Monday, a handful of their own U.S. Senate colleagues refused to go along with a vote ...

Maggie Walker’s awesomeness

We are still filled with pride and exuberance from the Maggie L. Walker statue dedication last Saturday in Downtown. There was a gloriousness about the day that Richmond rarely sees.
