Introducing The Virginia News Stand

We are pleased to bring to you a new feature: The Virginia News Stand. Everyday our crack communications staff puts together the best and most significant political news articles and commentary from newspapers across Virginia for our staff and board members, including The Norfolk Virginian-Pilot, Richmond Times-Dispatch, Roanoke Times, Washington Times, Washington Post, The Daily Press and many more. It's a great way to brief yourself on all matters Virginia — political and policy. In order to continue to our efforts to become the best blog and one-stop center for policy and political discussion and activism, we decided not to limit the party. We want to include as many information resources here as possible to give you every tool to better inform yourselves and your family, friends, colleagues, co-workers, neighbors and members of your church on the important issues of the day. Here's how it works: Everyday that our crack communications staff is in the office, we will create a post of links to the same articles, columns and editorials on Virginia policy and politics we are reading internally. (If a particular article deserves to be singled out for some reason, post your comments on that day's thread.) These daily news clips will be archived in a new category called The Virginia News Stand, which will archive only these posts. That way, if you want to research a certain day's articles from a few days or few weeks before, you can click on the category and search out what you need rather simply, without any cross-referenced  commentary posts to sort through. You can use our very accurate search engine as well. The headlines will be uniform for research simplicity. For example, Virginia News Stand: November 13, 2008.

Your friendly admin will even include an occasional editorial cartoon which the communications staff doesn't do. We hope you like this convenience and depth of information every bit as much as we will enjoy bringing it to you. In the meantime, if you have suggestions, about this new feature, or anything else about the blog, please let us know.
