  • Politics makes strange bedfellows

  • The GOP’s truly awful Senate candidates

        Virginia Republicans will go to the polls next week to pick a challenger to the popular, talented U.S. Senator Tim Kaine. They have a choice of three candidates, at least two of whom are ridiculous options.
         Even as a proud and partisan Democrat, I miss the days in Virginia when we could count on Republican candidates to have integrity, experience and good judgment. We knew they were qualified, and we knew the state wouldn’t be embarrassed if they were elected.

  • Remembering D-Day

        I hope I remembered to bring my sunscreen and a hat. Today is the National D-Day Memorial’s annual commemoration of D-Day and I’ll be up at the Memorial covering it. Hopefully, the weather will be bright and sunny, and as long as I remembered the aforementioned items, I’ll be OK. If not, I will get fried.
        I also hope all of you will head up to our hilltop memorial for the commemoration. We are truly blessed to have a world class memorial right in our backyard.
