Virginia News Stand: June 3, 2009

Here's today's news with the big story continuing to be the one we brought you late yesterday: Senator Creigh Deeds' apparent quiet surge from third to first in the Democrat gubernatorial campaign. We also refer you to Bobby Eberle's commentary about a book that will be foisted on children to learn about having "two daddies." Now, that's what education should be all about, right? Your culture at work.  News:
