Richmond Recollections

How we used to be…. Joseph P. Duggan recalls life at The Richmond Times-Dispatch back in the 1960s.  I lived in Richmond between 1963 and 1970, reading the Times-Dispatch faithfully.  I even attended Douglas Southhall Freeman High School.  I remember reading V. Dabney and James J. Kilpatrick, and relishing the cartoons of Jeff MacNelly.  Their America had its flaws.  But it was a civilized place where knowledge, reason, and liberty were valued and people’s rights, concerns, and feelings were respected.  It believed in its people and in itself.  I miss it.
