Bob Gibson is a class act, a fact known by everybody who knows him ... And, to boot, he knows how to turn a good phrase ...

Charlottesville is not NY, NY, by any stretch, but it is beginning to have an affluent/effluent air to things. Work to keep C'ville simple and unpretentious and things will be fine. Let C'ville slide into a complete gridlock and culture where people lose their smiling outlook on life and it'll...

The presence of The University gives the area enough of a pretentious reputation. Courtney Stuart, please don't feed the superiority complex that some around here have. Ann Harbor, Michigan. Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Austin, Texas. Amherst, Massachusetts. All are college towns with culture...

Great story. Not too long ago I got back in touch with Bob Gibson after many years. We grew up together in Arlington and were good friends since childhood. In high school we ran the Teen Democrats together where we earnestly tried to get rid of Rep. Joel Broyhill (I hope I haven't outed Bob's...

I think Charlottesville needs to get over itself. I can't believe that this is considered a topic for discussion (or a cover story).

Hell no, Charlottesville is not the new NYC. Not even close to Boston, or D.C., for that matter. The only thing 24 hours in town is CVS and Waffle House. You can't even have a building higher than 9 floors. The only thing C-ville is growing to emulate is Fairfax County.
