|The protest at UVa|
It's just the biggest story in Virginia this month, so we won't go into newspapers' travel budget constraints. Charlottesville, after all, is two hours away from Roanoke and this isn't a football game after all. It's not even a basketball game, for chrissakes. It's just a president and a bunch of rich people having a squabble about education and who the hell cares about that? Certainly not Republicans.
Anyhow, if you're interested in the latest dramatic turn of events which will likely result in the re-instatement of UVa's popular president as early as tomorrow, go to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Washington Post, C'Ville Weekly, the Daily Progress or any of half a dozen papers that aren't depending on the AP wire service for their stories. Half a dozen other papers half the size of the local daily here and just as far away from C'ville have staffers there, as well. Saving money is commendable. Failing your job is not commendable.
We can follow what happens to the third-rate Virginia Beach condo developer there, too. My guess is the local daily is working on an important story on mommies.
