Head fake

The toughest conflicts to resolve are often asymmetrical in nature, where one side is willing to abide by basic standards of honesty and fair play, the other side is not, and the spoils of victory end up going to the cheaters.

Up in Richmond, Gov. Bob McDonnell has put together an interesting proposal to pull Virginia out of a transportation financing rut that, left unfixed, will bring road building statewide to a halt in a few short years.

Steve died Saturday night while dining out with his wife and family members at an Altavista restaurant. His death is a tremendous loss for local law enforcement, to say nothing of all the other realms that were graced by his presence.
