Thumbs Up to Governor-elect Bob McDonnell for stopping to visit Alexandria’s Carpenter’s Shelter today. His visit is a terrific symbolic gesture that he intends to be governor for all Virginians.
Thumbs Down to whomever broke into a house on Madison Street last Thursday and allegedly stole a dog from the residence. How could you? Really?
Thumbs Up to Superintendent Morton Sherman for exploring the possibility of public-private partnerships to hold down the cost of new school construction. In an era of shrinking resources, innovative thinking is exactly what’s needed.
Thumbs Up to the students who participated in the Martin Luther King Jr. poster contest. What a positive way to keep Dr. King’s legacy in the minds of the youth through artistic expression.
