Chris Christie still in the news, and not going away, Greg Dworkin told us. Virginia's new Attorney General, Mark Herring, announces the state won't defend its same-sex marriage ban. A new Pew poll shows partisan divide on economic inequality. A roundup and explainer on the "three Rs" of the ACA: reinsurance, risk adjustment and risk corridors. Which Repblicans seem desperate to call a "bailout." And the explosive story out of Texas, where a hospital says it's being forced by state law to keep a brain dead woman alive (for 20+ weeks!) to incubate her unborn baby, against her family's wishes. Shifting gears entirely, the story of how the town where the Superb Owl<sup>TM</sup> is actually being played is getting none of the NFL love & big buck$. An unintentionally revealing almost-sorta-semi-defense of Bob McDonnell. A former coal miner says they've been dumping this stuff in the WV water forever. Hunter's take on Dick Black's apparently uncontrollable libido has a happy ending (no pun intended): he's dropping out of the VA-10 congressional race.
