"But there’s no solid evidence there are any bodies under the parking lot, which was used by Virginia Commonwealth University until last week, despite numerous protests. A large, 25-foot wide drainage sewer, formerly Shockoe Creek, is definitely under the parking lot."

"A study by the state Department of Historic Resources indicates the actual burial ground, beside a known gallows, is further up the hill, beside and perhaps under Interstate 95."

And yet, the state wasted $3.3 million giving it to the city of Richmond.

WHY???????

Did the state find pot of gold to pay for fixing the real problems we have? I doubt it.

Do you understand why you are not fit for service? You can't possibly know how the system works. You read an article somewhere, come here and repeat what you've read but you don't have the ability to think. Could be because you think with your brain but stick to those shovel only jobs.

"Fit for service"???

What I quoted was from THIS article. Perhaps if you had read it and not just spewed your crap as always, you might just understand.

I believe it unfortunately is beyond you!

The state does not have money to waste on foolish endeavors like this.

Unlike you nothead, I earn what the Commonwealth pays me.

You, on the other hand just lie and collect your welfare check and continue to be a non-productive leech on society.

Untrue nothead. She taught me not to trust or believe Dumbocraps like you, Tim Kaine and Nasty Piglosi.

She told me if your lips are moving, you are lying.

No truer words were ever spoken.

Wrong again nothead. Unlike your crack head mother, mine raised me to be a useful and productive member of society.

You are nothing but a drain on society via the welfare system.
