Let us count the ways ...

Congress is looking to do away with the Federal Historic Tax Credit program, which has been key to efforts to revitalize Southside Virginia. But let’s be real. The hit on historic preservation isn’t even on the list of the top 10 things wrong with whatever the Republican Party is calling “tax reform” these days.

Hot air of summer

You don’t have to look far for examples of how silly our political discourse has become — just turn your attention to Sen. Frank Ruff and Del. Tommy Wright, respectively.
