Sarah Palin makes a robocall.

Upset the Setup comments on some recent graffiti/mural going up.

Mr. T in DC takes in autumn in Rock Creek Park. The blogger gets downright poetic: "It's so nice there this time of year, with the bugs and humidity finally gone. I didn't see any wildlife, or thankfully encounter any coyotes, but I did hear a lot of unusual bird sounds. The foliage wasn't very spectacular, with only a few trees in the yellow and red stages; they seem to be going straight from green to brown this year. Still, it's soothing to watch the leaves fall from the taller trees and flutter to the ground, and to hear them crunching underfoot while walking along the path. I love the sound of the leaves going under the wheels of cyclists going by, and the sight of them floating down the creek like little boats."

New Columbia Heights notes that Sticky Fingers picked up an award (it's not a shocker).

The Heights Life documents Target getting ready to sell booze. They have pictures! And the booze ain't even on the shelves!

Penn Quarter Living offers a rundown of doggy friendly restaurants.

And Now, Anacostia has some pictures from DC United Family Day.

    If you think robocalling is bad, I see in this YouTube video that McCain's campaign is outsourcing their calls to India! I guess that's what you have to do when you can't find enough "real Americans" to be your volunteers. This is a pretty hysterical behind-the-scenes look at the McCain campaign:

    thanks for the tip about sticky fingers -- it's one of my favorite places. I noticed there is an entire list of restaurants that won awards (not just sticky fingers) on http://www.VegDC.com. As a long-time vegetarian (and someone kinda new to DC) it's cool to see a website dedicated to veg eating in the area. Makes dining out with the family a heck of a lot easier!
