-3Stephen Murmer, the "butt-printing artist," is fired from his job as an art teacher at Monacan High School after his professional lives collide and cause a stir. The school may have suffered a loss, but the world has finally gained a full-time butt-printer.



0Former Gov. Jim Gilmore decides to become a Republican candidate for president. No word on when he'll start acting like a Republican.



+1You may find high-calorie cakes and muffins at Richmond Starbucks stores, but the company has banned trans fats from its products. Now if they could only end the marathon playing of Corinne Bailey Rae.



0The General Assembly convenes in Richmond, then takes a field trip to Jamestown to mark its 400th anniversary and hear from Vice President Cheney. Sadly, Sen. Lambert is left behind after leaving his permission slip at home.



+1Delegate David B. Albo introduces the "Truth in Music Advertising Act," intended to punish bands that falsely imply connections with other bands. Apparently somebody couldn't get his money back after seeing Creedence Clearwater Revisited and The Doors with Ian Asbury.
