41. Raymond H. Boone 

Richmond Free Press Publisher

It may not be a direct result of Boone's handiwork, but it's worth noting that three of the Richmond Free Press publisher's most frequent targets — Circuit City, Ukrop's and Virginia Supreme Court Chief Justice Leroy R. Hassell — went away this year. (Hassell will step down but remain a justice.) Boone's soft touch with Mayor Jones' (No. 7) administration may suggest that City Hall's shadow falls heavily over the Free Press offices a few blocks west.
