Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, January 27.

*Virginia case highlights need to stop gerrymandering by GOP, Democrats alike ("Both Republicans and Democrats regularly exhibit such greed and dishonesty in manipulating electoral maps that a Columbia University expert who studies the practice likened his work to that of an anthropologist who observes cannibals.")
*Today's top opinion: Seeing red: The Electoral College
*Schapiro: Va. Senate Democrats divided, dysfunctional, naive (" More than divided, they are dysfunctional. Their leadership - what leadership? - is better at speaking out after the fact than outsmarting Republicans before it. And Democrats are naïve, believing if they're nice to Republicans, Republicans will be nice in return.")
*Electoral College Change Could Weaken Northern Virginia's Influence

*Cuccinelli seeks bipartisan backing to ease ballot access rules in Virginia
*Virginia's GOP lawmakers endanger Gov. Bob McDonnell's legacy
*Virginia Democrats criticize electoral vote changes they once supported
*Editorial: Allow Dreamers to pay in-state tuition ("Legislators should note the growing clout of Hispanic voters and adopt enlightened immigration laws.")
*Gun-related homicides and injuries down as firearm sales soar
*In Virginia, Teach for America may fill gaps
*Fairfax County water plan could block homeowners from adding on
*Prospect of East Coast uranium mining dividing Virginia in debate over jobs vs. environment
*Rapid growth drives frequent boundary changes in Northern Virginia schools
*A bad wager on betting referendum
*Why Virginia ♥ Panama
*D.C. area forecast: Heading out of the deep freeze
