Letter to the Editor:  It’s not too early to plan for next Board of Supervisors election
On Tuesday, the gentlemen of the Shenandoah County Board of Supervisors voted to increase the tax rate to support school funding. Three fourths of that funding is slated for pay increases.

Robert B. Reich: Antitrust laws potentially useful in new Gilded Age
We're in a new Gilded Age of wealth and power similar to the first Gilded Age, when the nation's antitrust laws were enacted. Those laws should prevent or bust up concentrations of economic power that not only harm consumers but also undermine our democracy -- such as Comcast's pending acquisition of Time Warner Cable.

Jonah Goldberg: Obama in a predicament over Keystone XL pipeline
On Good Friday, President Obama made a bad call. The State Department announced that it would delay its decision on the Keystone XL pipeline until after the Nebraska Supreme Court rules in a case involving the route. The administration insists the decision to punt has nothing to do with politics. Pretty much everyone else thinks otherwise.

Navigating end-of-life care / Thu, 24 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0400
We almost lost Mama last week. Three years after she walked into a nursing home, the dementia has robbed her of nearly everything, both mentally and physically. The latest to go is her ability to swallow. I'm told it is just a manifestation of the disease: The brain no longer sends signals telling her to swallow.

Poor judgment at the IRS / Thu, 24 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0400
The Internal Revenue Service is not known for its kindness toward tax cheats. Unless, apparently, they work there. The growing list of outrages now includes an inspector general's report showing that the IRS paid bonuses to 1,146 workers with tax issues, including not paying them. That's not all.

Kaine and Wolfson: Living up to Jefferson’s ideal / Thu, 24 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0400
When Thomas Jefferson wrote the words "all men are created equal" in the Declaration of Independence, he put in place a moral standard that will always challenge us to be better people. Our founders passionately believed in equality, but most saw no contradiction between that belief and slavery. It took 90 years and a civil war to correct that injustice.

Prep for chaos, hope for peace / Thu, 24 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0400
Virginia Beach is expecting a crowd at the Oceanfront this weekend. This time, police, merchants and hoteliers - having learned from last year's chaotic "College Beach Weekend" - are preparing. It's possible that traffic will be diverted from Interstate 264, as it was July Fourth, to prevent gridlock at the resort and allow emergency vehicles to go where they're needed.

Will: The adolescent president / Thu, 24 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0400
Recently, President Barack Obama - a Demosthenes determined to elevate our politics from coarseness to elegance; a Pericles sent to ameliorate our rhetorical impoverishment - spoke at the University of Michigan.

Editorial: Number games / Wed, 23 Apr 2014 22:30:00 -0400
To the cheering of the liberal commentariat, President Obama spiked the football last week over the news that 8 million people had signed up for health coverage through the Affordable Care Act. Why th

Editorial: Shake-up / Wed, 23 Apr 2014 22:30:00 -0400
Gov. Terry McAuliffe has replaced five members of the state’s port authority — half the number his predecessor, Bob McDonnell, replaced just three years ago. Turnover like that is not good for any ins
