Editor's Notebook

Editor’s Notebook: Making a splash, endorsement-wise

Time to give credit where credit is due, in this case to Karishma Mehta, who is challenging Del. Alfonso Lopez in the 49th House District. The two are facing off in the June 8 primary. Mehta has almost zero visibility...

Editor’s Notebook: How do you really feel, Sen. Ebbin?

That was quite the thrashing that state Sen. Adam Ebbin (my senator!) gave Del. Mark Levine (my delegate!) yesterday. Without even mentioning Levine’s name, Ebbin threw Levine under the bus in endorsing Elizabeth Bennett-Parker, who is running (and hard) to...

Editor’s Notebook: ‘Après moi, le déluge’ on housing?

‘Après moi, le déluge’ -- such was the famous bon-mot from France’s King Louis XIV – a guy who knew how to run a country with an iron fist, that’s for sure – and a phrase that has over...

Editor’s Notebook: When we’ll know Reagan National is rebounding

A chance encounter this weekend with an old buckaroo who can be counted on to provide some insight into all things aviation led to my question to him: “Reagan National Airport eventually is going to get back on track, right?...

Editor’s Notebook: Starting off with a bang

Arlington County Board aspirant Chanda Choun pulled no punches in his allotted three minutes in front of the Arlington County Democratic Committee rank-and-file on Wednesday, laying into both incumbent board member Takis Karantonis and the Democrats’ process for choosing...

Editor’s Notebook: How about two for the price of one?

The more one hears from the two Democratic candidates for Arlington School Board, the more one wishes that there were two vacancies to fill this year. In very different ways, both Miranda Turner and Mary Kadera are putting forward more...
