Monday News: Gorbachev Says Trump’s INF Withdrawal “Not the Work of a Great Mind”; “GOP plays the bigotry card in midterms”; Anti-Pipeline Protesters Make Views Heard at Northam’s “Summit on Rural Prosperity”

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday, October 22. By the way, that photo is by the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League (BREDL), which writes: “Folks arrived in Staunton, VA to share our views on the Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast Pipelines at our Governor’s ‘Summit on Rural Prosperity.’ I’m sure we made an impression as we marched through downtown Staunton to the Stonewall Jackson Hotel as folks arrived and mingled in the conference room! Of course, we know there is no prosperity for landowners who will lose their land, or communities who are forced to host these dangerous, polluting fracked gas 42” pipelines. We represented everyone along the routes of both these monstrosities and we promise, they heard us!” By the way, seriously? The “Stonewall Jackson Hotel?” 

There's no paywall on Blue Virginia, and we definitely want to keep it that way! If you want to help support our work, you can donate here - thanks! Also, you can sign up for our weekly email list here.
