Re: “Virginia GOP lt. governor nominee: birth defects caused by sin

Well, in the broad sense sin led to The Fall as recorded in Genesis, which led to corruption of the natural world.

However, it is not the correct spirit to say that your individual sin on any particular day leads to a birth defect (e.g. you sin, a random child gets a birth defect). Unless someone is speaking of reckless behavior during pregnancy perhaps.

Best,
Shane

Re: “Wednesday night line

I'm pretty sure if I'm reading the quote correctly that Tom Cotton said there were zero successful attacks *AFTER* 9/11, not that there were no attacks during the entire George W. Bush administration.

Obviously he's aware that there were further attempts, but none were successfully carried through.

Having said that, I don't think W. can take credit for the shoe bomber, if I remember correctly a fellow passenger stomped that guy down.

Re: “Buddy's bridge to Dogtown

One clarification. I was never a sponsor on this ordinance but I did initially commit to Judge Villines that I could live with it since there was no new tax proposed and we wouldn't be borrowing money.

After much thought, research and discussion later I just can't get around spending $20 million to add to a bridge that the State will provide at no extra cost to Pulaski County taxpayers.

Best,
Shane

Re: “A solid majority supports Roe v. Wade

Shame, that.

Re: “Proposed changes weaken Lake Maumelle watershed rules

People can and will debate on whether the Land Use plan is merited or not, and if so how strong it should be.

However, regarding the US Geological Survey which Max dismisses in this post, here is an excerpt from an email I sent to the USGS last January when there was discussion over the relevance of their report.

"The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) report on the water-quality model of Lake Maumelle and its watershed is of strong interest to many of the Lake Maumelle watershed discussion stakeholders, and also to several members of the Pulaski County Quorum Court.

Understanding that it is not intended as a predictive model per se, it still adds to the discussion of the quality of the water at the present time and how changes might already have or could possibly affect this water quality.

Given that, I am still very interested in the release of the updated report to ensure we have the widest range of scientific data and analysis available before considering any legislation that could affect current and future residents of the area. I would not feel comfortable moving forward without having a chance to review the updated report."

It's possible to actually delay an issue to gather more facts before possibly infringing on rights without being a corporate stooge. I know that's a crazy concept to grasp, but it does happen.
