Legume is coming to downtown Fredericksburg and is going to support our vegan, vegetarian and pescatarian friends; which is awesome.
What isn't awesome for us is that they are getting the best executive chef currently working in downtown Fredericksburg by taking Justin Cunningham from our family.
Justin has been with me from the beginning and I certainly will miss him, but I know he struggled with this decision and made it only after much consideration for what is best for his family, his career and his craft.
I, for one, look forward to trying his new food and will support him in any way I can.
As for us, we still have him for a few weeks and will be searching for a replacement who can maintain our relationships with our farmers, use direct from farmer purchased ingredients in the menu, and provide for our customers the best food in Fredericksburg.
This week, in response to the tragedy in Orlando, I joined Senator Chris Murphy and 37 of my colleagues in a more than fifteen hour filibuster on the Senate floor. Our goal? Finally get Senate Republicans to agree to votes on commonsense gun reform measures like preventing suspected terrorists from obtaining weapons and expanding background checks to ensure only responsible citizens are authorized to own firearms.That line about "preventing suspected terrorists from obtaining weapons" has been bandied about by the dishonest pundits of the left since the Orlando terror attack. It's referring to the fact that the Orlando shooter was investigated by the FBI at least twice prior to his jihadist actions. What they neglect to say is that he was not restricted from buying guns because the FBI is more concerned about not offending the mohammedans than they are are protecting innocent Americans. If Tim Kaine really cared about saving lives, he would be calling for an investigation of the FBI itself. His line about "expanding background checks" is misdirection too. The Orlando terrorist passed multiple background checks as part of employment investigations. In that process as well he was given a pass. There is simply no way for the left to promote gun control without engaging in lies and deception.
