A last minute deal on Virginia's ban on so-called partial birth abortions has fallen through.
Today, a federal judge in Richmond pressured the Attorney General's office to agree on a partial injunction.
It would guarantee abortion doctors would NOT be prosecuted for performing "conventional" earlier term abortions.

How'd you like to drive from Washington, D.C. to Orlando, Florida without stopping for gas?
Some Indiana college students are hoping to do just that.. if the hot weather holds up.

Of course, air conditioning is NOT an option in two solar-powered cars that stopped in Lynchburg today.
The "Solar Phantom" is a vehicle designed by students at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute.
They've been pleased with the car's performance so far.

((DAN VIALARD/RHIT JUNIOR: THE CAR HANDLES VERY WELL COMPARED TO A PASSENGER CAR. IT'S ALMOST LIKE DRIVING A SPORTS CAR EXCEPT YOU SIT EXTREMELY LOW TO THE GROUND, YOU'RE BASICALLY LAYING DOWN. THE CAR HAS A VERY FAST STEERING RATE AND ACTUALLY TAKE CORNERS A LOT FASTER THAN THE CHASE VAN THAT FOLLOWS IT.))
