Virginia is acting like a grownup, passing legislation increasing gun control, protecting abortion rights, and expanding voting rights. They also (finally) got rid of Lee-Jackson day, although, to be fair, when I first moved here we had Lee-Jackson-King day, I kid you not, as the Feds imposed MLK day on top of prexisting L-J day. They eventually moved L-J to the Friday before, making for a 4-day weekend.

Now, *that* will be missed.

What non-virus-related stories are you finding in your local papers? Good news preferred but interested in anything.

The bilby is Australia's very own Easter bunny, but how much do you actually know about it? Forget Easter bunnies, in Australia we're all about the Easter bilby*
The bilby is a small native marsupial with huge ears and a pointy snout that makes it look like a cross between a bandicoot and a hare, but with extra fluffiness.

*We have been assured that the Easter bilby is also an essential worker and will be distributing eggs this Easter.

Prickles has quite a fleece! Will be interesting to see how much it weighs.

We used to have a cat called Prickle, a black and white puss......lived to be 15 or so......our boys gave her the name. When we were bringing her home in the car from the animal shelter she was stretching and 'kneading' as cats do; "she's very prickly" said the boys. And so 'Prickle' she became.

2 Feral sheep shorn for first time in years after discovery near WA beach

they couldn't move fast enough to get away from the bloke who saw them! The average fleece weighs 5 kilos (11 pounds), these lost 19 kilos (41 pounds) each, but the record for a feral sheep is still 41 kilos (91 pounds) from the sheep found in 2015! Check out the before & after photos.

But
There will

is called into question or even be done.
All the dirty tricks in the book will be in full force.

"Americans are suffering from Trump fatigue to the point of completely giving up." so true, Don. Most everyone I know is hunkered down in this very conservative district and just waiting for their chance to vote out this cretin. Judging from the Democrat turnout and the results in every election since and including the mid-terms,in spite of all the efforts at voter suppression, Americans are highly motivated to remove this malignancy.
