Earl Washington, Junior twice had a date with Virginia's electric chair.
He served four months in prison, after DNA evidence proved him innocent of a 1983 rape and murder in Culpeper, and the Governor had granted him an absolute pardon.

This afternoon, Washington reported in at the private training and counseling facility which will help him serve out three years of supervised parole.
Its terms mean he can't leave Hampton Roads, or break any law without being returned to jail.
Washington was joined by three other former inmates exonerated by DNA evidence, including Roanoke's Ed Honaker and Michael Graham -- who was on Louisiana's death row for 14 years.

(( Many musical groups like Metallica, have led a long crusade against Napster saying it is illegal to allow customers to down load their songs for free. And they arent alone. Five big Record label companys have also filed suit against Napster and today, a federal appeals court in California added a new verse to their battle cry ordering the controversial site to stop trading copyrighted material. Napster says the pledge to continue their fight to provide music for free.
This all started when Napster founder Shaun Fanning developed a software enabling personal computers to easily manage music over the internet. The concept of swapping music quickly took off. And these days, the company says more than 2.2 million songs being shared among its 12 users.
(Terisa Estacio)

Although Napster is all about music Industry experts say this decision could have far reaching consequences. It could set a new standard on how books or films can be swapped on the internet. Alan Light is the editor and chief of Spin, insider magazine on the music business.
sot: Alan Light/Spin Magazine

this is much bigger than just music. It clears the way for other avenue such as movies. The federal court failed to put a timeline on when Napster must cease allowing copyright material to be swapped on its site. And, it is not the only game in town. There are several other internet services which supply a similar service and many Napster users say they will just cross over and continue getting their music for free. Terisa Estacio, CBS News.))

A good strength spark would be a weight training session, or calisthenic exercises like squats and push-ups. The flexibility spark should include stretches for your back and hamstring muscles. The Spark theory was tested on forty subjects at the University of Virginia. The results?

The Grinch may have stolen Christmas, but it appears a Virginia principal is going after Valentine's Day.
After learning school secretaries would typically deal with more than 100 deliveries of flowers and balloons on Valentine's Day, a King George County principal banned all such deliveries this week at the school.
The ban is making many teachers, parents and students angry- and area florists are not too happy about it either.
But the school superintendent likes the idea- and ordered the ban for ALLl schools in the King George County system.
