Your money’s safe—unless Ryan has his way
LOS ANGELES--There should be a rule--or even a law--that politicians who propose "fixes" to Social Security should at least show they know something about the program. By that standard, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., would flunk....

In Boston’s wake, an anniversary slips past
NEW YORK--Two wrenching anniversaries loom in the world of sports. Both are in many respects conjoined by the dominant narratives of the 21st century. Both show how the military adventures of the last decade have even breached the escapist sanctity of the sports page. Both contain elements of tragedy, honor and courage. But you can be sure that one of these anniversaries will get a whole hell of a lot more attention than the other. On Monday, April 21, the Boston Marathon will take place, and we will be compelled to remember the horror of last year's bombing attack at the finish line. Three were killed and more than 250 were injured. Two immigrant brothers, driven by their anger, ideology and alienation toward what is called the "Global War on Terror," set the blasts. Two brothers: one now dead the other facing state execution....

Virginia Beach should know not to float maglev plans / Sat, 19 Apr 2014 00:01:00 -0400
Here comes Tony Morris, president and CEO of American Maglev Technology, touting an audacious proposal to bring his fledgling transportation system to Virginia Beach. Instead of choosing to extend light rail from Norfolk, pick his magnetically levitating train! It would work great! A line from Newtown Road to the Oceanfront would cost just $334 million - a third of the price of light rail!

Letter to the Editor: Delegates need to quit the fighting president
I have watched with keen interest the latest round of wrangling over local budgets and the need to raise taxes to cover public education expenses, tourism expenses, conservation expenses, salaries, pensions, etc.

Letter to the Editor: No raises until performance improves
I have been inundated recently with emails from the Shenandoah County school superintendent telling me what superior work the division's employees are doing. The emails often cited some award that the division or an employee received. Unfortunately, a lot of those awards were from organizations with ties to school or teacher organizations.

Letter to the Editor: Invest in our future - approve the tax increase
You have probably noticed a divide between people for the 5.5 cent per $100 of assessed value increase to the real estate tax and those opposed.

Letter to the Editor: We need ideas to hold the line on county budget
I went to the public hearing on the fiscal year 2015 Shenandoah County budget. At least that is what the very informative booklet we all got said. Although the budget had about 15 different categories listed, the entire discussion was about proper respect for our school teachers.

Jonah Goldberg: Dance with Putin is sad sock hop
President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that "Mr. Putin's decisions aren't just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they're going to be bad for Russia."

Robinson: A victory lap for the Affordable Care Act / Sat, 19 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0400
It's all over but the shouting: Obamacare is working. All the naysaying in the world can't drown out mounting evidence that the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama's signature domestic achievement, is a real success. Republican candidates running this fall on an anti-Obamacare platform will have to divert voters' attention from the facts, which tell an increasingly positive story.

IRS eyes look away from audits / Sat, 19 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0400
Even four days after the tax filing deadline, no one feels warm and fuzzy contemplating the prospect of an audit by Internal Revenue Service. But most of us can appreciate the reason: It's a good idea to have agents scrutinizing a sampling of returns to help increase the likelihood we're all paying our fair share.
