-2 The state amends medical-waste regulations so that hospitals can dump more mildly bloody bandages, urine-soaked bed-sheets and dirty tubes into landfills. We can only hope that the changes will once and for all turn around the public-image problems that have for so long plagued bloody bandages, urine-soaked bed-sheets and dirty tubes.

0 A judge decides the state must allow the Sons of Confederate Veterans to display the Rebel flag on special license plates. Their Confederate ancestors would be proud — not of the plates, but of the magical horseless carriages.

-1 Gov. Mark Warner and his wife, Lisa Collis, decide to send their two older daughters to the private St. Catherine's School. When will we realize that Richmond Public Schools needs to do a better job of accommodating limos?
