Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Wednesday, November 26.

*‘Better night’ in Ferguson though dozens arrested

*Inconsistency only constant with case

*Officer Darren Wilson’s story is unbelievable. Literally.

*Congress Poised To Eliminate Key Tax Breaks For Middle Class, Provide Permanent Tax Breaks For Corporations (Sounds like veto material to me.)

*Obama Threatens to Veto $440 Billion Tax Deal (“The president would veto the proposed deal because it would provide permanent tax breaks to help well-connected corporations while neglecting working families.” Bingo. Also, so much for Republicans caring about the debt!)

*How sexual abusers hide in plain sight: What Rolling Stone’s blockbuster UVA rape exposé really tells us (“…we clearly haven’t learned enough to consider rape enough of a crime to, you know, matter, especially when the big business of media and higher education is at stake.”)

*Jindal to keynote Va. GOP’s Advance (How appropriate! LOL)

*Powhatan senator Watkins won’t run again in 2015 (“His departure could create an opening in the 2015 legislative elections for Democrats, who in the past three statewide elections have carried his district, which includes parts of Chesterfield and Powhatan counties and the city of Richmond.”)

*Fresh from narrow re-election win, Warner sets sights on U.S. debt

*Speculation builds ahead of McAuliffe’s visit to N.H. (“The Virginia governor will address a state Democratic Party meeting and headline a fundraiser next month.”)

*Attorney General Herring appoints counsel for UVa board on sexual assault policies

*Letter: College students support federal carbon reduction standard for Virginia

*Nov. 26 Letters: Sen. Kaine on Keystone XL Pipeline (“…we need to send the market signal that cleaner energy is the path forward. We need to be cleaner tomorrow than today.”)

*U-Va.’s governing board votes for zero tolerance of sexual assault

*The UVA Gang Rape Allegations Are Awful, Horrifying, and Not Shocking at All

*Fairfax County facing budget shortfall, officials say

*Hampton Roads reacts to Ferguson unrest

*Editorial: Hanover Schools – Eeek (“Never let it be said that residents of Hanover are not vigilant. Some of them stand ready to clutch their pearls and swoon at the first sight of peril – real or imagined.”)

*Poorly timed rain and snowfall complicates Thanksgiving travel

  • Jim W

    Hannah Graham is one more victim of rape culture.  

  • Also interesting that when the poll is recalculated for Clinton supporters’ second choice, it comes out: Biden 34%, Warren 25%, Sanders 6%, O’Malley 2% and Webb 2%. Not looking good for Webb at this point no matter how you slice it. Of course, it’s still early, but it’s hard for me to see core, liberal Democratic primary/caucus voters going for Webb.

  • This has got to be up there – wow!

    P.S. how can you go wrong with Mike Masse, an awesome violin player, and great videography like this?
