Welcome to our new design theme! We hope you enjoy the new, neat and dynamic look of our blog, and hope it is easier for you to use and navigate. We have some small things to iron out, but the new design and layout are a huge improvement over our original theme. From the beginning, we never claimed to be tech wizards who could keep up with all the latest bells and whistles. But we did promise, and have delivered, some of the best commentary and insight on issues, policy and politics facing Virginia. Now, this new theme, as well as our update to the latest WordPress version, will allow us to add more components and enable more functions and tools to make your online experience with us pleasant, exciting and second to none. We hope it will entice you to visit more often, draw even more readers (please spread the word!), activate a larger community, and that it will allow us to make this blog a more complete and thorough one-stop resource for all of your Virginia political and policy information. So, look for more improvements and features in the future. In the meantime, feel free to let us know what you like or don't like about the new site, and what features you'd like for us to incorporate.

A sincere thank you, as always, for your constant visits, comments, feedback and participation here. It has made us, with thousands of unique visitors each month, one of Virginia's most read political blogs, and we are very grateful for that as together we work to restore to the commonwealth its founding vision of traditional values through old-fashioned grassroots activism as well as modern-era information technology.
