Virginia News Headlines: Friday Morning

by: lowkell

Fri Nov 23, 2012 at 06:42:23 AM EST

Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Friday, November 23.

*The GOP's wild attack on Susan Rice ("Republicans show a blatant disregard for the facts." Shocker, huh?)
*Egyptian Protesters Rally in Cairo After Mursi Expands Powers (This situation does not bode well...)
*Tea party vows to stay for long haul, takes no blame for GOP losses (Excellent, go Tea Party - may you never change! LOL)
*Polls offer little guidance for politicians tackling 'fiscal cliff' (Looks like politicians are going to have to show - wait for it - leadership. GASP!)
*Grand Old Planet ("So don't shrug off Mr. Rubio's awkward moment. His inability to deal with geological evidence was symptomatic of a much broader problem - one that may, in the end, set America on a path of inexorable decline.")
*Snyder leaving FOX News as he considers LG run (This should be good for a lot of laughs in 2013!)
*Report: Dominion Virginia Power customer's bills have gone up since deregulation ended
*Innocence finally leads to freedom
*Neighbor is credited with saving family in Fairfax fire
*Dulles Airport marks 50th anniversary
*Hampton Roads shoppers get early start to Black Friday (This is just sad.)
*U.Va., Va. Tech left wondering what went wrong
*Griffin right at home in Redskins win (RGIII is definitely one of the best athletes I've ever seen. Wow.)
*D.C. area forecast: Unlike shopping, weather pretty peaceful today; Arctic chill on tap tomorrow

WalMart's Gambit...Bad Bottomline (0.00 / 0)
The stores in the Shenandoah Valley were almost empty this morning. This is the Waynesboro store where there wasn't an open parking space last night. But this morning, no joy for the boys from Bentonville.

The aisles are still filled with "doorbuster specials" left for liquidation later in the season.


And It Washes the Retail Sector (0.00 / 0)
Just up the street from WalMart, the Target is also quiet as a church. A clerk told me the entire morining had been dead. The doorbuster specials are still stacked in the aisles.
