I’m sure y’all have noticed a lack of posts around here. Tax season is in full swing and I’ve been buried and will be buried for the next few weeks. I’ve not had time to watch “The Speech” but I hope to get to it this weekend. A couple of quick items:
- Bill Richardson has endorsed Obama. I’m disappointed but not surprised. Richardson has been angling for a position in the next administration and “The Speech” gave him an opening.
- Rev. Wright is coming to Norfolk. I have no doubt that he was invited before the storm hit. Bank Street happens to be one of my favorite churches. I have a lot of friends that go there and the former pastor was an absolute joy to listen to.
- Del. Tommy Gear is thinking of running for treasurer in Hampton. I’ll bet there are some members of the General Assembly who would love to see him vacate his seat. The Daily Press article says it is unclear when the seat would be on the ballot, assuming current treasurer Molly Ward is elected mayor in May. I seem to recall that the code says something about having to hold a special election if the next scheduled election is more than 120 days away, but I can’t locate that right now.
- March Madness is underway today. I haven’t watched the tournament in 20 years and couldn’t tell you who is ranked where. Needless to say, I didn’t bother entering the tournament sponsored by NLS and The Virginia Federalist. There is also a blog set up over at PilotOnline to follow the games.
Finally, here’s a video of generals supporting Hillary Clinton.
