Writing incessantly about the BRT is KIND OF like poetry, right?

These local poets make us feel really untalented, dag nabbit. Brett Stonecipher talks to Allison Titus, Joshua Poteat, Brynne Rebele-Henry, Gregory Donovan, and Michele Poulos about the stuff they’ve published, their writing process, and how their secret dream is to one day write for a local online news magazine. If only that last part were true, but it is not. We’re on our own here–poetless.

Keep an eye out for the sequel, “A Deer’s Reevaluated Life”

David Shultz discovers the RPD’s new K-9 training facility over in what more accurately deserves to be called Dogtown–that area of Northside where the City puts things it doesn’t know what else to do with, an area that also includes a radical dog park! Anyway, the history of police dogs in Richmond is pretty interesting!

LOL, Jerry Mandering

The best part is that this video by OneVirginia2021 is going to be part of a series. They’ve figured out the secret! Make a funny thing and we will all be open to learning from it!
