Posted on Wed, May 31, 2006 at 4:00 AM

+1

The Times-Dispatch announces the retirement of Ross Mackenzie, editor of the daily's editorial page for 37 years. Upon stepping into the sunlight, he turns to dust, which is then scattered into the newspaper ink now smudged on all our souls.



+2

+1

CarMax gets a new CEO in Thomas J. Folliard. He is gently used.



+2

The "American Idol" tour, featuring Richmond's Elliott Yamin, sells out in 15 minutes, Coliseum officials say — rivaling the Bruce Springsteen concert. One day aliens will read history books about the pop virus that killed the human race.



+4
