+6 In graduation news, thousands of degrees are conferred over the weekend to students at Virginia Commonwealth, Virginia Union and Virginia State universities. And now for the bad news: At least 5 percent of college graduates end up on reality TV.

-6 Using data on America's health, Newsweek's Daily Beast ranks Richmond as the second-fattest city in the country, right after Memphis, Tenn., with about 30 percent of the population cited as obese. Shoot, the only reason Memphis beat us is because Elvis is still buried there.

0 A Mitt Romney campaign source tells Politico that the candidate's safest choice for a vice-presidential running mate will be an "incredibly boring white guy." Something tells us there's a giddy governor throwing back some really stiff 1-percent milk right about now!

-5 Delegate Bob Marshall speaks against the nomination of Richmond Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney Tracy Thorne-Begland to a general district court judgeship, citing his history as an "aggressive activist for the pro-homosexual agenda." C'mon Bob, doesn't everyone wearing those robes feel a little bit gay?

+8 Richmond gears up to honor veterans with the Welcome Home Our Heroes Parade, along the Boulevard to Dogwood Dell starting Saturday at 10 a.m. And if we can't draw more people than showed up to Elliott Yamin's "American Idol" parade, we're all going to hell.
