Should the City of Charlottesville honor “Lee-Jackson” Confederate generals day with a holiday? It’s a state holiday in Virginia. City Councilors say they want to hear from the public. Weigh in at council@charlottesville.org.

CVS Counter signs

“Ending the sale of cigarettes and tobacco products at CVS/pharmacy is simply the right thing to do for the good of our customers and our company. The sale of tobacco products is inconsistent with our purpose – helping people on their path to better health.”–CVS

Simply the right thing to do? On my way from this, the front counter, to the pharmacy counter in the back of the store there is an entire aisle LOADED with candy. What percentage of the people who walk through the portals of CVS are obese and/or diabetic?

stay puft figure
Vernon Rudolph started making doughnuts in Old Salem (Winston-Salem) NC, in the summer of 1937.
Don’t know when Mr. Stay Puft began working with Krispy Kreme or how much he,
or Dan Aykroyd or Ghostbusters make from the deal.

Dan Aykroyd conceived of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man for his initial script for Ghostbusters
the movie. He created the character to show that “it seems harmless and puff and cute—but given
the right circumstances, everything can be turned back and become evil”–Wikipedia

hot light, krispy kreme
Learned about the “hot light” in Raleigh, NC. Krispy Kreme fires up a “hot now” neon light when they birth a new batch of their glazed doughnuts. Natch, they have an app.

birthday party

Fourth of July celebration and naturalization ceremony at Monticello earlier today.
The years I’ve attended the candidates for naturalization stand on the stairs of the nickel porch,
a grand stage from which to step into citizenship.

The only problem, the angle of the July sun during the ceremony challenges attendees.

spectators shield themselves
Looking down is easier than looking into the sun.

hat people
They make these clever things called hats.

dog with sunglasses
The event at Monticello is beautiful, it is rich with memory and promise. It is free. It is highly recommended.
Monticello, Saturday July 4, 2015?
Note to self, hat & sunglasses.

Indeed, as important as it is to understand Rodger’s actions within the context of the mental illness he clearly suffered,
it’s just as clear that his delusions were inflated, if not created, by the entertainment industry he grew up in.–Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
