Rising to the top

I’m old enough to have lost track of the exact moment when the governors of our fair Commonwealth started issuing daily updates on even their most perfunctory achievements in office. It must have been the dawn of the Internet age.

Room for debate

It’s not often you see the Halifax County Board of Supervisors defy the will of a full room of citizens when rendering a decision, but that’s exactly what board members did Monday night by voting 7-0 to sell the old Halifax Elementary School property to Echelon Resources, a Richmond-based redevelopment company. Echelon’s proposal to convert the surplus school building into market-rate apartments has been overshadowed in recent weeks by a competing offer by Jack Dunavant, and the Halifax businessman and council member brought a big crowd in support of his plans for “Houston Place” to the supervisors’ meeting Monday night.

A time of choosing

I hate to have to say I told you so, but I told you so — for the last 30 years, really, but with growing alarm over the past 15 years, give or take. A lot of y’all didn’t want to hear it, and mocked the very idea that a one-note liberal like me would have anything worthwhile to say on the subject, but it’s finally become impossible to deny the obvious: There’s something seriously wrong with the Republican Party.

Ego and the id
