  • VDOT bonusesPolicy

    Democrats have a new transportation plan – slash tires in order to keep Republicans off the road. While that might be beneficial to some, it probably isn’t a long-range solution to our budget and transportation issues.

  • Bearing Drift asks Virginian-Pilot “What about Bob?”Catch-All

    Once in a while, newspapers will accidentally let it slip that their political stances aren’t as nonpartisan and unbiased as their talking points suggest.
