Virginia News Stand: March 18, 2009Mar. 18, 2009
The News Stand is back after a St. Patrick's Day absence. We hope the all Irish, and Irish-philes for that matter, had a wonderful day. Today's News Stand is, in part, dominated by the RPV chairman fight. This will likely dominate the political headlines until it's resolved, but there's no guarantee as to when that will be. But there is more, a lot more. In particular, I highly suggest reading the opinion piece culled from the Wall Street Journal, by Dr. Brad Wilcox. Dr. Wilcox is a professor at U.Va. and a member of The Family Foundation's marriage commission. This past General Assembly session, he testified on behalf of our Family Life Education bill. Monday, our president, Victoria Cobb, offered a review of the article (here).
Also of note is the national news article, from the Kansas City Star, about the trial of the abortionist George Tiller, whose prosecution was begun by our Annual Gala speaker this year, Phill Kline. For background on the case, see and hear Mr. Kline, now a law professor at Liberty University, yourself, here and here.
