MY TRIBUTE to ERNIE BANKS

A VIRGINIA RIGHT SCOOP? MIGHT DIANE FLEMING get a NEW TRIAL?

I was at the Court of Appeals today and I saw a remarkable document:  An order from the court on a application for a Writ of Actual Innocence.  Most of these writs go nowhere.  They are quickly dismissed for want of new evidence or some other deficiency. But this writ is in the case of […]

My post on industrial hemp caused a minor furor – I had said that if Dels. Peace, Fowler and Adams were for it I would take a chance.  Tom White heard from the delegate’s office on hemp. So I heard about HB 1666 directly from the delegate himself.  He was explaining how it works.  Here […]

TIME to CONSIDER INDUSTRIAL HEMP for VIRGINIA

I had the pleasure today to meet Jason Amatucci.  Jason is the founder of the Virginia Industrial Hemp Coalition.  Now I found a bill (HB1277) that authorizes Virginia to allow the legal harvesting of industrial hemp when the Federal Government authorizes it. Industrial hemp is not marijuana.  But it is the same plant designed to […]

SANDY SAYS VOTE WALTON TODAY!

Editor’s Note: Sandy emailed me yesterday about endorsing Walton. Due to other issues, I wasn’t able to research Walton in time to make this a blog endorsement, but as Walton is the Republican candidate, I would recommend voters cast their vote for him. It should be an interesting race with a very low turnout. But […]

THIS WOULD BE GOOD NEWS: JOHN BOLTON in 2016

Several sources are reporting that former UN Ambassador John Bolton is about to leave Fox, maybe within days, almost certainly to seek the GOP Presidential nomination.
