On the brink

The fix we find ourselves in as citizens of America is also the moment many of us have been dreading — when the venality, incompetence and bad faith of the White House under Donald Trump would finally drag the country to the brink of crisis.

Ye merrie ould quiz

What you will see, if you leave the Mirror free to work, I cannot tell. For it shows things that were, and things that are, and things that yet may be. But which it is that he sees, even the wisest cannot always tell. Do you wish to look?

High on Santa’s list

Without intending to trod on Santa’s turf, a few years ago I started the Christmas tradition in this space of handing out the gift of a nice word or two for the people, places and things that make Halifax County such a wonderful community. One week of the year at least, I offer nothing but nice things to tuck under the tree.

Lasting legacies

Change at the Governor’s Mansion naturally brings on a debate on the legacy of Virginia’s outgoing chief executive. The end of Gov. Timothy M. Kaine’s term of office is bringing on something more: the pain.

Virtual reality

I remember reading once about the difference between a folly and a mistake: a mistake can result from a decent idea that doesn’t quite pan out, whereas folly arises from notions so ridiculous that no sane person should ever entertain them. So to cut to the chase, is the Modeling and Simulation Center for Collaborative Technologies at Riverstone Technology Park a mistake, a folly, or something else besides?

Loose ends

Bunny Propst has written a straight-to-the-point Viewpoint letter blasting South Boston’s alleged scheme to run off Riverdale merchants and build a wetlands park at the town’s southern gateway. I agree with Propst that converting Riverdale into parkland is folly, but not for quite the same reasons as she spells out. Where is the money for this grand design? Wouldn’t it be better to drop this notion of buying out property owners, make some low-cost improvements to the district (like doing something about that billboard that blocks the view up the hill of the SVHEC and The Prizery) and simply move on? Should the Riverdale merchants form their own version of MoveOn.org? So many questions, so little time for answers.
