Friday, October 15
The race for Virginia's 2nd Congressional district is probably the most-watched in Hampton Roads. According to the New York Times, the district is a toss-up between Democrat incumbent, Rep. Glenn Nye, and Republican challenger, Scott Rigell.

Life Imitating Art: Creating for Community Awareness 
Art in its many forms-visual, theatrical, musical-is undoubtedly inspirational, and that inspiration is powerful. In Hampton Roads, community service and outreach is a driving force for several creative projects. On this edition of HearSay, award-winning Virginian-Pilot photographer Stephen Katz joins us to tell us about his project, "Shoot for Good" and how you can participate. Plus, we'll hear how community outreach plays a big part in the Virginia Stage Company's current staging of "The Diary of Anne Frank," and its overall mission from artistic director, Chris Hanna.
