Ex Virginia governor helps Howard County candidate

Thursday was not a good day for the last governor of Virginia as Bob McDonnell was found guilty of corruption in a Richmond courtroom. But another former Republican governor of Virginia, George Allen, had a better day of it in Howard County, talking up the candidacy of state Senate hopeful Jody Venkatesan in District 13 and other candidates at a Clarksville ballroom. “There were a lot of folks from Maryland who helped me out” in his successful race for governor of Virginia 20 years ago, Allen told a crowd of about 50, and he was happy to return the favor. Venkatesan is running against Democratic Del. Guy Guzzone for the seat now held by retiring Democratic Sen. Jim Robey. In 2010, Venkatesan lost the Republican primary for the seat that represents much of eastern and southern Howard County, but ran unopposed in June. “In every way, Jody is running on the issues that matter...

The four-way stop sign and the Ebola virus

So, there I was in Rockville driving 30 mph as the sign says I should. I was nearing a speed light camera and I was third or fourth in line at the four-way stop sign when the young woman behind me began honking her horn. Then she pulled around me, flashed me the most famous finger which is either an insult or a proclamation and headed on down the road.

Ronald Reagan vs. reality

Ronald Reagan vs. reality

  Jimmy Carter turned 90 this week. I mention it because while many vilified him when he was  President, many of those who did so also praised him as being the most decent man ever to hold the office.

And had he found five working helicopters to rescue the hostages in Iran, we might never have heard of Ronald Reagan – except in B movies like “Bedtime for Bonzo.”
