So I got an email that I won a prize pack of free stuff from Mix 103-7 for, well, I don’t even remember. I think I took a survey a while back to rate the music they play online. Anyway, I drove all the way down to Midlothian to get my stuff, and here’s what was inside the bag (with their logo printed on it): A t-shirt, coffee mug, plastic cup, magnetic clip, and fridge magnet. I mean I can’t complain because it’s free stuff, but I drove to southside for a bag of promotional goodies so that I can sport items with their logo on them and help Cox Radio garner more listeners? Appears that way. Oh well, it was free!
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.
While I realize this email was sent in error, it’s a fairly accurate look at the number of daily local stories that will be left if @LeeEntNews keeps laying off local journalists at the @RTDNEWS. It’s sad and pathetic.
