Virginia News Headlines: Monday Morning

by: lowkell

Mon Feb 04, 2013 at 06:34:35 AM EST

Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday, February 4. By the way, I'm proud to say I didn't watch 1 second of the Super Bowl, but instead was busy reading a book recommended by my friend (and Democratic superstar) Kip Malinosky called (appropriately, given what a violent football sport is?) "The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined" (by Steven Pinker).
