Let me be clear at the outset of this commentary. I am not making an attempt to impress you with my piety. Heck, I’m just another old Pharisee trying to make my way through my remaining days on this confused, baffling, wondrous, puzzling, and often enigmatic little mud ball floating in third place from the […]

Unfortunately it’s hard giving up your dependence on the kindness of strangers. Fearing Gov. McDonnell’s idea may go national, a group of ‘public’ radio and TV stations have launched a new website that sings the praises of living large on taxpayer dollars. The site is called 170millionamericans.org and refers to the estimated number of people who “interact” with ‘public’ broadcasting each month.
