Here are a few Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Friday, April 6. Also, check out that headline about Romney using an exception to ethics laws to avoid disclosing where his money's invested "or if those holdings could affect his policies or present any conflicts of interest." That says a great deal about Willard, nothing good! Finally, happy Passover and Easter weekend to everyone celebrating those holidays.
P.S. Yesterday had to be one of the best days in a long time for Washington, DC-area professional sports teams, with the Capitals clinching a playoff spot and the Strasbourg-led Nationals winning their opening game. Good stuff if you're a Caps or Nats fan (I'm both).
