On courage and cowardice

Over the weekend I was thinking about anonymity. I’ve written before about my own decision to blog in the open, but Scott York’s tantrum from the dais brought it up for me again a couple of weeks ago and then Loudoun Insider said something that made me sit and ponder.

One of the benefits of …

The fix is in

The BOS voted 9-0 to hire an independent investigator to look into Delgaudio’s actions.

I wrote another letter (updated with links I sent to the BOS)

Dear Scott, Janet, Suzanne, Ralph, Shawn, Geary, Matt, Ken, and Eugene:

Please forgive my writing to you in a bunch like this but I wanted to make sure that you all see that I’m being open and above-board here.

I believe that Loudoun needs Metro. Not just for commuting purposes, and traffic relief, but for …

What (some of) the winners said about Metro

Jim LeMunyon (R)

Elizabeth,Delegate LeMunyon is out of town today attending a funeral. He was quoted today in the Loudoun Times-Mirror on this very subject.

The entire article can be found here: http://www.loudountimes.com/index.php/news/article/state_house_of_delegate_candidates_face_off_at_chamber_event898/
