It's a rare moment when Virginia's General Assembly can muster the votes to override a Governor's veto.
But it happened today for a Virginia Tech project.

Jean, Governor Jim Gilmore vetoed 12 bills outright.

A Texas surgeon has developed something he hopes will help his patients preserve their dignity during surgery.

For years patients on the way to surgery had to strip completely, even if it was just an operation on a foot or hand.
It was a matter of infection control.
Also in years past, anesthesiologists used explosive gas and the fear was clothing could create friction and spark a fire.
But that's no longer a concern.
So Dr. Hilario Trevino invented a disposable surgical undergarment that cloaks the patient without getting in the way.
