It’s the end of the semester, and you know what that means: It’s time to get screwed over by the VCU Bookstore! So I spent $400 on textbooks back in January. Today I went down to VCU and got a whopping $13.50 back in resale value. Half of my books wouldn’t be taken back because they’re proprietary, custom VCU books that have no value once used because they change every year. I have a big problem with that. That’s just ridiculous. I spent more money than that on cheese pies yesterday at the Lebanese Food Festival. I probably spent more than that getting my Xterra down there to the VCU Bookstore and back. Textbooks are a royal ripoff. Students such as myself are getting nothing short of scammed. It’s infuriating.
Good riddance to @Enrichmond. I do hope someone assumes stewardship of the East End cemeteries, but I’ve been saying for years something stunk in this organization or just wasn’t quite right. Looks like they’ve dissolved and drained their bank account: https://richmondfreepress.com/news/2022/jun/30/enrichmond-foundations-status-unclear/
Really liked this condensed, emoji-fied roundup of some of the most notable new laws going into effect today in the Commonwealth from @KarriPeifer and @nedoliver over at @axios #RVA.

So much truth it hurts. Not to mention it’s a rock in the rising stream that is inflation. Hell, even the Dollar Tree is $1.25 now. But the old standby Costco hot dog? Forever a buck fifty and I’m here for it.
