Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Saturday, September 22. Also, check out President Obama's weekly address, in which he slams the Republican House of Representatives for their decision to "skip town" without passing any legislation to help the economy, create jobs, or anything else useful for that matter.
UPDATE: Also, Ezra Klein NAILS it in his piece, Romney's skewed view on responsibility. ("This is a man blind to his own privilege. Which is his right. But that sentiment informs his policy platform - which calls for sharply cutting social services for the poor to pay for huge tax cuts for the rich - and it suggests he's trying to make policy with a worldview that's completely backward.")
