Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell is the first Virginian Governor in nearly a decade to declare April (the month Virginia seceded from the U.S.) Confederate History Month.  I wonder if this will be in Keeling’s next “Governor envy” post.

The Dayton Daily News story I wrote about yesterday was later edited to revise the quote from Husted’s campaign spokesman from indicating that the campaign was still decided whether to attend to a definite no.

Watching, I can’t imagine how the helicopter crew saw AKs and RPGs, but I will accept that they thought that is what they saw. Obviously, RPGs are bad news for helicopters; if someone has an RPG and is preparing to fire it, that is something that must be addressed by the helicopter.

I think, in the end, this is probably one of those textbook examples of “bad […]

Howie Klein and I talked a little while ago, here’s the story.

“It’s time to no longer be defined by our mistakes,” says Russo.?”This new legislature, in my own hometown, needs precisely the experience I can deliver, and I’m not going to let a stupid mistake I made almost a decade ago stop me from trying to deliver it.?Not for one second.”

It’s so on.
