Please, do not kill us, it’s all we ask

There simply cannot be anything that important happening on social media that would require you to check it while you drive. Just say out loud “Cleverly worded political pwn. TV show someone likes. Kids say a darned thing. Article you will flag for reading later but probably won’t get to” over and over, and it’ll be just like being there. Anyway it’ll probably soon be against the law in Virginia to do just about anything on your phone except talk on it, and remember when even that was pushing it?

Few things are more delicious than a hot buttermilk biscuit, prepared in a good, traditional way. The original RVA Coffee Love turned RVA Pancake Love has expanded its mission of turning Valentine’s Day into a way of showing love to the homeless, into a way to literally give love to the homeless in the form of a hot biscuits and gravy meal in Monroe Park. Trevor Dickerson gets the details, and yes, you can still sign up to help set up and break down the event.
