newspapersThe Virginia Public Access Project has a nifty resource — the Whipple Report — a free, daily news clipping service "for those who want to start their day with a 360-degree view of the top issues facing Virginia."

Every morning the Whipple Report (named for retired CIA analyst and consummate news clipper Tom Whipple, not the "Please don’t squeeze the Charmin" guy) sends out the headlines from must-read political and government stories in 20 newspapers. It’s an easy way to get a handle on the news without having to read 20 papers yourself — plus you’ve got experts pointing you to the good stuff.

VPAP says the report already has more than 2,000 subscribers — why not be the next?
