Editor's Notebook

Editor’s Notebook: Take care out there on the water

Granted that a lot of news that is reported is a bummer, but it's always doubly sad when it's a case of a drowning during the summer months. We reported on such a case yesterday. A 29-year-old Sterling man died...

Editor’s Notebook: Shakespeare nails it in the 8th District

"Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing" would be one way to describe the now concluded 8th District Democratic congressional primary. Except of course that there was no real fury, as contenders Don Beyer and Victoria Virasingh were perfectly cordial...

Editor’s Notebook: Happy stinkin’ Bicentennial!

The recent news that Arlington homeowners were seeing their garbage piling up because of staffing shortages and other woes with the contractor used by the county government brings two things to mind. First, the old saying, which I may have...

Editor’s Notebook: A little cheesecake to start the day, anyone?

Today’s topic is “things that were perceived as perfectly harmless in the 1950s-’60s but probably would get a certain segment of the populace outraged today.” We take the wayback machine to this coming week in 1966, as one of our...

Editor’s Notebook: Cracking under the stress?

What’s not to love about U.S. Rep. Don Beyer (D-8th)? I mean, heck, we’re not exactly on the same page on many issues, yet he’s a good guy and represents the bulk of his constituents well. But I’m wondering if the...
