Today's Opinions

  • Comey’s testimony was extraordinary

        If he didn’t show anything else during his Senate testimony, fired FBI Director James Comey demonstrated the integrity that Donald Trump so utterly and obviously lacks.
        That was among the reactions Americans felt as literally millions watched last Thursday’s hearing from beginning to end. At the very least, they were left with an impression of a president who went to some lengths to charm the FBI Director who “he hoped” would end an investigation he didn’t want.

  • Different times

        We’ve seen just this past week how different media coverage of the presidency can be.
        Had the main stream media treated President Obama the way it is now treating President Trump, a much different narrative would have been painted on Trump’s predecessor.

  • Tuesday is primary day in Virginia!

        Virginians know how our state holds a governor’s election the year after the presidential contests, and we take for granted that it will be watched everywhere. This year is no less true!
         On Tuesday, June 13, citizens of the Old Dominion who don’t like to miss elections will go to the polls and choose either a Democratic or Republican ballot. Problem is, those “who don’t like to miss elections” are smaller than they’ve ever been, and it’s a serious problem for our democracy.

        She said, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” And he awoke from his sleep and said, “I will go out as at other times and shake myself free.” But he did not know that the LORD had departed from him. (Judges 16:20 NSAB)

  • May we never forget

    By James F. Burns

        A tear welled up in Hal’s eye, a deep sadness etched across his face as he recalled the moment.  Omaha Beach, the day after the D-Day invasion.  Hal had been tasked by his company commander to go back down onto the beach and retrieve some equipment.  A farm boy from Iowa now deep into his 60s, he shared this memory with me, his words below.
