Virginia News Headlines: Tuesday Morning

Tue Nov 20, 2012 at 06:27:46 AM EST

Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Tuesday, November 20.

*World Bank warns of '4-degree' threshold of global temperature increase
*Clinton headed to Mideast to seek solution on Gaza (Hillary to the rescue? Let's hope.)
*Hostess To Pay $1.75 Million In Executive Bonuses After Blaming Unions For Bankruptcy (Time for everyone to learn how to make their own Twinkies - screw this horrible company!)
*Conservatives to GOP establishment after Romney's loss: We told you so (Hahahahahaha. More popcorn!)
*How The Conservative Media Lost The Election (And yet MORE popcorn! LOL)
*'Fiscal cliff' may affect '13 budget, governor warns Va. lawmakers

*3 local ships extend deployment amid Gaza conflict
*Editorial: Silly, costly budget gimmick must end ("Senior budget leader Lacey Putney is urging his colleagues to end below-the-radar state cuts to localities.")
*Confused drivers crash at entrance to new Beltway toll lanes
*Potential roadblock looms for Jones' Redskins deal
*Arlington confronts budget gap ("Faced with a budget gap next fiscal year, the Arlington County Board has instructed the county manager to cut spending and publicly warned that a tax increase is likely.")
