-2 In a profile of first lady Maureen McDonnell, the Washington Post reports that she was so dissatisfied with how a maid cleaned her bathroom floor that she stripped to her underwear to scrub the marble with bleach. Well duh. Of course you'd strip down. Who wants to risk ruining an Oscar de la Renta bathrobe?

+3 The two mainstream candidates vying for the governor's seat square off in their first debate, sponsored by the Virginia Bar Association. How thrilling is it? Picture "Sharknado" without all the tornado-spewing sharks.

+5 With the Redskins on their way to summer training camp in Richmond, residents show signs of getting into the team spirit. Even the Sisters of Bon Secours consider donning burgundy and gold habits.

+2 Speaking of fashion, local designer Angela Bacskocky debuts as a contestant on the reality competition show "Project Runway." It's the most significant step for local fashion since Gwar invented the tube top that spews intestines.

-1 And then she gets eliminated in episode one. Cue the spewing intestines.
