  • Trump finds his military toys

         During the presidential campaign, nothing was more sobering than the thought of Donald Trump with military power, especially, the power to start a war, even a nuclear war.
        When you combine his unpredictability with his thin-skinned temperament, well, you see the danger. But the “angry whites” who voted for him just didn’t care about that, not as long as there were immigrants to chase out and coal mining jobs to restore.

  • Trump debacle energizes Va. Democrats

        The multi-faceted circus that has taken up residence in the White House these days has had at least one positive effect: It’s galvanized many of the 48 million people who cast ballots for vote-winner Hillary Clinton.
        Even many of those who helped His Accidency sneak in through the Electoral College, by staying home or voting for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein, now realize that the Trump regime represents a profound menace to much of what moderates, liberals and progressives hold dear in this country.

  • The climate has changed many times
  • He is Risen!

    John 19: 5-6
    5 When Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe, Pilate said to them, “Here is the man!”
    6 As soon as the chief priests and their officials saw him, they shouted, “Crucify! Crucify!” But Pilate answered, “You take him and crucify him. As for me, I find no basis for a charge against him.”

  • UVA ends distance engineering program

    By Matthew Burrill

    The University of Virginia’s distance engineering program, known as the PRODUCED program, is coming to an end at a time where it seems education is moving more in the direction of online degrees.

  • An ignorant retreat on climate change

         In December, more than 2,000 scientists signed a letter to Donald Trump urging him to recognize reality about climate change and not reverse the U.S. commitment, under President Obama, to address this global problem.
         But as we’ve long known, appealing to this man through facts means absolutely nothing. He doesn’t recognize facts that don’t already jibe with his own “thinking,” a word that belongs in quotes because no one can be sure how his bizarre mind actually works, whether real thinking ever occurs.

  • It’s been easy to roll us

        Some hostile foreign powers have found it easy to roll us in the past because of our general reluctance to get tough along with our often bi-polar approach to foreign policy. Take the Soviet Union and Fidel Castro’s Cuba, for example.

  • Dealing with gangs

        Living in Bedford County can sometimes shield us a little from what many others deal with on a daily basis.
        And then we get a wake up call.
        That came this past week when a teenager’s body from Lynchburg was found on Roaring Run Road. Authorities are calling the homicide of the teen the result of MS-13 gang-related activity involving several undocumented illegal aliens.
        Folks got concerned.
