  1. Thank god for Virginia’s govener and a new excuse for outrage. Without it, we might be seeing more news about a certain actor and his doubtful claim of assault or, god forbid, reporting about a certain Native American and his stolen valor. No need to do real reporting if there is enough outrage to hide behind.
