Annotations & Elucidations Week's End

An eventful week winds down to a slumberish end. We all can use the respite. However, there is some news: Despite his "Executive Directive," Governor Bob McDonnell said on his monthly "Ask The Governor" show that there is no need for an anti-homosexual bias law. The Richmond Times-Dispatch has the details, but you can hear it for yourself on the link to WRVA's podcast (a first for the the News Stand). The Washington Post has mention of it as well, on it s Virginia Politics Blog. Have a listen and a read . . . and a good weekend.
