Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Saturday, January 21.

 

  • Leading Trump supporter all excited that his hero will #MakeAmericaChristianAgain I wonder what Thomas Jefferson, who cut and pasted the Bible (to excise the Resurrection, etc.), wrote that “Jesus did not mean to impose himself on mankind as the son of God” and “called the writers of the New Testament ‘ignorant, unlettered men’ who produced ‘superstitions, fanaticisms, and fabrications.'”

    Re: the Virginia Beach light rail money: the options appear to be (1) temporize, and dedicate the land for mass transit at some undetermined time in the future, and meanwhile use it for bike trails; (2) sell the land and reimburse the State and federal government with interest; or (3) the state simply takes the land by eminent domain and keeps it to do whatever it wants with it. I like option 3. Turn the right of way into a bus rapid transit road, which could also serve as an evacuation route. Assuming this map shows the route of the lrt right of way, it is a straight shot from an interstate in to the beach.

    The second best potion is sell the land, and pay the money back.
