The Walker Fine Arts Center at Woodberry Forest School hosts an open house to celebrate its three exhibitions that are part of the regional event, "Virginia's Piedmont, Through the Artist's Eye," sponsored by The Arts Center in Orange.  A group show in the Baker Gallery features work by Megan Marlatt, Bill Moritz, and Sean Samoheyl, among others. The Upper Walker Gallery displays "A is for Art," alphabet paintings by Laura Lambe Burrell. The Lower Walker Gallery features paintings by everyone's fave outsider artist, Joe Simms. 540-672-3900.


I'm very unhappy about the First Amendment. People keep using it to say things that I really, really don't like. Some of those things are patently offensive. This nation's founders didn't fight and die to give people the right to say things that I don't like.

The chalkboard is only one venue for this. Did you know that you can find dirty words throughout the internet? The very same internet that's in our schools and homes! Sometimes people put posters up that contain foul language, just put them right up on public poster boards. Some newspapers in town have contained some truly offensive language. Radio stations routinely broadcast offensive things. That Don Imus fellow said something last week that really made me angry and, get this -- it turns out that's not illegal!

I insist that we amend the Constitution to prohibit things that I find unpleasant.

Mr. Cox,

Would you please come to my house and bring your toilet brush with you. I have some offensive items in my bathroom that need cleaned.



I find your post offensive and I insist you remove it at once.
