Editor’s Notebook

Editor’s Notebook: A win is a win, but comes with slight caveat

Editor’s Notebook: A fading memory – politicians who concede graciously

My toodlings around Al Gore's amazing Internet over the weekend happened to bring me, as I sure it brought all the other cool kids, to WRC-TV's coverage of the 1980 Election Night. For research purposes. (Ah, a young Jim Vance...

Editor’s Notebook: Count on the media to hop on a sinking ship

From the McCaffrey Southern Command Center in Florida, it looks like most of the major daily newspapers (OK, putting "major" and "daily newspapers" in the same sentence these days is stretching it …) left in the Sunshine State are...

Editor’s Notebook: Fearless prediction time!

Election Day tomorrow is the last possible date in November in which it can fall, and lordy can we all agree to give thanks when it's over? I'm going to go out on a wing, a prayer and a limb...

Editor’s Notebook: How are the dominoes going to fall?

First of all, thank you to all three Arlington County Board candidates for taking time away from what no doubt was busy campaigning over the weekend to answer the Sun Gazette’s queries about how they think the upcoming election...

After 3 years of ‘Xana-don’t’ …

... next spring will bring the local area a dose of "Xanadu"! Perhaps an explanation is in order. (Ya think?) In the late winter of 2020, the thespians at George C. Marshall High School were getting prepared for their spring production...

Editor’s Notebook: Doesn’t take much to make me happy

Wednesday's toodlings took me over to the Exxon at the corner of Columbia Pike and South Glebe Road, where for several decades now my various cars have had their inspections. Phew: Even though the current chariot has passed the 9-year...
