The Real life “Emergency!” and a thank you to EMT’s and Paramedics

I have a confession to make.  Whether it makes me sound odd or not I don’t know.  And, when I think about it, I really don’t care.  But of all the TV shows I’ve watched growing up and as an adult, from “Gunsmoke” to the “Star Trek” my favorite, going away, was “Emergency!”  Do you even remember it?  It ran from 1972 to 1978. It was incredibly wholesome program and followed the adventures and trials of two paramedics in Los Angeles.  Back then, providing emergency medical treatment at the scene of an incident was a new concept.  It was even considered dangerous, but the value of this capability was rapidly proved, and this kind of early intervention in a medical emergency has saved a lot of lives.

Checking in on the General Assembly’s summertime antics

It’s the end of summer and the last thing we should be worrying about are partisan shenanigans in Richmond.
Yes, there is a General Assembly election going on, but by this time of year the legislature itself should be adjourned not to reconvene until 2016.  But this year, it seemed the unbridled partisanship and the political maneuvering couldn’t wait.

Bright spots seen in Virginia’s economic outlook

Economists can be a dreary bunch.  We are rarely if ever all that optimistic. What’s the old saying?  An economist’s job is to find the cloud behind every silver lining.

A Marine Remembers

This is not a plug for the local cable TV show I co-host with my friend Tom Coen.  Some might view it that way, but that’s not the reason I’m writing this particular column.  Rather, I want to talk about a guest we had recently, a remarkable man that Tom interviewed.  I was just watching and helping out with this shoot.  We do a lot of interviews on CVTVs “Rappahannock Issues.” We talk to local officials, politicians, representatives of local charities and business people.  When we first started the show I was worried that we wouldn’t find enough topics and guests to produce a weekly show.  I was wrong.  But, last week was by far one of my favorite programs.

McAuliffe deserves “A” for his first year-and-a-half in governor’s seat

As a good Democrat I have a confession to make.  In 2013 I wasn’t Terry McAuliffe’s most enthusiastic supporter.
