Chuck Collins is a senior scholar at the Institute for Policy Studies. He's also an author, an editor, and a child of the so-called “one percent."

Plus, the 76th annual Norfolk Chamber Music Festival is underway in the state's northwest corner. We explore some of its unique history and meet its director, Melvin Chen.
