Weekend in Review: CIA Soup of the Day Edition

Wet weather didn't just disrupt your balcony barbecue over the weekend. The soggy conditions are being blamed for delaying today's scheduled reopening of the Chain Bridge, WJLA-TV reports. In a cruel twist of fate, the Woodrow Wilson Bridge was somehow able to reopen early.

WaPo's Howard Kurtz this morning profiles the frantic lifestyle and obsessive Twitter habits of "Chuckie T," better known as NBC chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd (you know, the guy with the goatee), whose crack team of investigative reporters will vigorously track down any scoop:

"I have the CIA soup of the day — bacon corn chowder! Yes!" Guthrie exclaims as if she has unearthed a state secret.

The Examiner uncovers more scheming restaurant workers skimming the credit cards of unsuspecting D.C. diners, this time at the Cheesecake Factory at 5345 Wisconsin Avenue NW, where three employees are accused of bilking patrons to the tune of $117,000. And you thought the wild blueberry white chocolate cheesecake was a ripoff.

In sports: who needs the Stanley Cup when you can win the American Fitness Index? WTOP reports the D.C. metropolitan area ranks No. 1 in the American College of Sports Medicine's new fitness study:

The report says in the last 30 days, 80 percent of people in the region did some sort of physical activity or exercised. Nearly 29 percent said they ate at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
In the metro area, 90.2 percent of people have health insurance.
The region also has lower than the national average rates of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. 
 
Clearly not every one is eating the bacon corn chower.
