letter to editor

Letter: Public deserves say in historic-preservation process

Editor: Your March 24 article was excellent and accurate, except for a couple of points we would like to clarify. You wrote that, “Current law is somewhat nebulous, but appears to allow the localities themselves to decide who can...

Letter: There are ways to achieve diversity, at TJ and elsewhere

Editor: Anyone who thinks an entry examination to Thomas Jefferson High School for Science & Technology is fair – diversity be damned – isn’t thinking very deeply about the subject. The myth that “cream rises to the top” is one...

Letter: Author of Dred Scott decision does not deserve recognition

Editor: The other day, a friend informed me that a relative of his lived on a street in Northern Virginia, ridiculously close to my residence in Arlington, named for a late Supreme Court justice who figured prominently, my friend...

Editor: While I applaud the Fairfax County Park Authority’s effort to consider community wants regarding the reconstruction of the McLean Central Park to bring more life to the community incorporating all ages , I still have few concerns. My first...

Letter: Deer overpopulation presents multiple threats

Editor: The Feb. 24 article combines incomplete information and inflammatory statements in an effort to downplay or dismiss the threat that deer overpopulation presents for Arlington’s local natural areas. In fact, the drone survey conducted by a contractor for...

Letter: Time to add more Governor’s Schools?

Editor: Your recent editorial on Thomas Jefferson High School for Science & Techology asks school leaders across Northern Virginia to “work to ensure that all students, starting in elementary school, have the tools they require for maximum success,...
