The Northern Virginia Daily's Political Depot

A service for our readers outside the Northern Shenandoah Valley... a sampling of The Daily's political coverage, plus unofficial, 'reporter's notebook' stuff. And occasional dry humor...

Punchin' out



It's that time of year again, when The Daily's political department packs up the car, the iBook of Mild Peril, a travel humidor and extra socks and heads south for a much needed week of sanity. Adios Press Dungeon, we're headed to the Volunteer State.

So what will this motley crew be doing on the road?

• Two high-speed inspections of the entire length of Interstate 81 in Virginia.
• Taking the pulse of the race to succeed Rep. Bill Jenkins, R-Tenn., in the 1st Congressional District while taking a long hard look at Tennessee's efforts to reform Medicaid.
• Monitoring the situation in Richmond remotely using high speed data links.
• Causing retinal damage with Half-Life 2, X-Wing Alliance.

See y'all in a week or so...
