Subject: BS: New news *not* about the virus
Virginia is acting like a grownup, passing legislation increasing gun control, protecting abortion rights, and expanding voting rights. They also (finally) got rid of Lee-Jackson day, although, to be fair, when I first moved here we had Lee-Jackson-King day, I kid you not, as the Feds imposed MLK day on top of prexisting L-J day. They eventually moved L-J to the Friday before, making for a 4-day weekend.

Now, *that* will be missed.

What non-virus-related stories are you finding in your local papers? Good news preferred but interested in anything.
