Interesting stuff

The Norfolk paper in this column and this article examine how judges are selected in Virginia.

The Richmond paper reports that computer chips have outpaced both coal and tobacco as Virginia's leading export.

The Norfolk paper reports that some character has filed a civil rights lawsuit in federal court over the Wren Cross matter. I wonder what his theories could possibly be.

This AP story and this report from the Norfolk paper describe an ethics complaint filed by some lawyer from Roanoke challenging the participation of legislators whose firm does eminent domain work in the formulation of laws in that area. The Attorney General has opined that there is no violation.

Finally, in Canada, the Supreme Court ruled that the perils of operating a Zamboni machine were not reasonable foreseeable to the manufacturer, overturning a verdict for an injured Zamboni operator.
