Good Morning, RVA: Tired of all these clouds

There’s a decent chance you’ll see the sun at least once before 2015.

Good morning, RVA! It’s 40 °F, and today we have have a small but non-zero chance to see the sun. After a possible bit of morning rain, the clouds will break–but will they break before sunset? That is the question on which your seasonal affective disorder stands.

Embarrassing, small-town politics.

Graham Moomaw has some details on Richmond’s financial contribution, or lack thereof, to the Redskins Training Camp. The City’s on the hook for $547,685, and if it doesn’t pay up Washington is free to “walk away from the deal.” If that happens, at least we could then stop using the Sixth Street Marketplace as our example of failed city-funded development de rigueur.

There are so many good quotes in this Style Weekly piece about the concrete polar bear at Main and Robinson! The bear’s on the move, but, luckily, just across the street.

Sports!

  • Rams fought off some hot first-half shooting from the Cleveland State Vikings and rolled to a 72-63 victory.

The bias that “women do the mere programming” extended into the early days of the computer, and it meant that many of the earliest and most pioneering programmers were women, learning hands-on to do things that had never been done before.
