+2 In a talk at the University of Virginia, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli — a conservative gubernatorial hopeful — signals that he’s open to legalizing marijuana. He didn’t realize pot could be such a revenue generator until he Netflixed all eight seasons of “Weeds.”

+3 Plus: The University of Richmond’s ensemble-in-residence, Eighth Blackbird, wins its third Grammy (+7). Minus: Local hardcore rockers Lamb of God lose out to Halestorm (-4). And Chris Brown? Well, he just never adds up.

-4 Several Richmond elementary school teachers replace classroom chairs with exercise equipment, asking children to sit on inflatable stability balls. In worse news for fat kids, dodge balls are being replaced with chairs.

+5 The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts closes out its exhibit of glass artist Dale Chihuly, with officials projecting that it was seen by nearly 160,000 people. Meanwhile, janitors are being treated for Windex withdrawal.

+1 Colonial Williamsburg picks the Martin Agency to help it develop a new brand campaign. Maybe we finally can put that damn Gecko in the stockade.
