+4 That's a wrap, with Richmond schools holding their last day of class. Don't worry, that popping you hear isn't gunfire — it's teachers opening champagne bottles.

+2 Meanwhile, students celebrate their release into summer. Up first, a party at the moon tower, where the kegs will flow and they'll finally lose their virginity to that cute upperclassman. While we just play video games and sob over the lack of signatures in our yearbook.

+5 After the House of Delegates controversially rejects his judgeship, openly gay Chief Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney Tracy Thorne-Begland is appointed by the Richmond Circuit Court as a general district court judge. Confirming Republicans' worst fears, Thorne-Begland says he'll bring a radical-activist perspective to judging Richmonders' traffic tickets.

-3 The T-D reports on the death of a 250-pound black bear that's struck by two cars after running into Interstate 64. We're not sure who to blame here, but we'll just assume U.Va.'s Board of Visitors is somehow at fault.

0 Local politico Paul Goldman and Delegate Joe Morrissey announce that they're going into business together, starting up the Morrissey and Goldman law firm. Their first client: the grieving family of that 250-pound bear.
