Virginia News Headlines: Monday Morning

by: lowkell

Mon Dec 10, 2012 at 06:55:06 AM EST

Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday, December 10.

*Obama, Boehner meet one-on-one, discuss 'cliff'
*Lawrence O'Donnell Confronts Gingrich: Asks Him To Apologize For Predicting Clinton Tax Increases Would Lead To Downturn
*Top Senate Democrat Rejects Raising Medicare Eligibility Age
*Conservative Pundits: Accepting Same-Sex Marriage Is Common Sense (It's also inherently conservative, in the sense of keeping the government out of people's private lives unless there's an overriding reason it needs to be involved. Hey Ken Cuccinelli, I believe that's known as a "first principle!" LOL)
*Battleground Poll: Most back path to citizenship (Make that a whopping 62%-35% in favor, with 77%-19% support for the DREAM Act. Not even close.)
*Repairing America's elections (This is badly needed.)
*Editorial: Gov. McDonnell offers budget hope ("Whether to protect localities and absorb federal cuts is not up to him alone, though.")
*Alexandria Del. Herring elected Va. Dem leader
*In run for governor, Cuccinelli will have to reunite Republicans
*Board Members 'Dismayed' at Garvey's Allegations
*Report: SEAL Team 6 member killed in rescue of doctor
*Sunday Q&A with Cale Jaffe
*Christina Nuckols: Road woes pose danger to public schools
*Growth study says more mass transit needed
*For RGIII, glory, pain and anxious waiting
*Griffin goes down, Redskins step up ("Washington survives the loss of its rookie QB and pulls off a last-minute comeback, then beats Baltimore in overtime, 31-28.")

Redskins (4.00 / 1)
I don't even like football, but that game yesterday by the Redskins was brilliant. (My husband loves all sports.) RGIII completed two passes after that hit to his leg. Fourth-round rookie pick Kirk Cousins comes in, throws touchdown pass and runs for 2 points to tie game. Seventh-round rookie Richard Crawford running 64 yards to set up the winning field goal by rookie Kai Forbath. Someone did a fantastic job with the draft picks.  

Yeah, I'm not a huge football fan, but that game (0.00 / 0)
was amazing! (Now, if they'd just change the team name from the whiteskins...I mean blackskins...I mean yellowskins...I mean brownskins...I mean redskins. See how offensive it is if you substitute any other color?)

Cousins Shines (0.00 / 0)
Another Michigan State University alum looks good.

Mere parsimony is not economy. Expense, and great expense, may be an essential part in true economy.
