Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, March 31. Oh, and the photo is what tar sands look like when they spill all over your backyard and the rest of your neighborhood. Lovely, huh? Yeah, let’s do a lot more of this. NOT!

    As a political junkie I cannot help but wonder why the WAPO did not tie the stories about McDonnell, Star, and Cuccinelli’s stock holdings together. Star currently has a lawsuit pending in Mecklenburg County regarding tax issues. This lawsuit has sat dormant for an usually long time but I am sure that has nothing to do with the fact that the Cooch is running for governor. (snark)

    Does the promotion of the dubious company by the governor allow the Cooch to make a 7K profit? Maybe the more the WP story becomes mainstream then the Cooch’s remaining stock may become worthless. I may be wrong, but doubt that many of the right wing rags throughout Va will print the story.
