It's Good Friday and that means Shrine of the Sacred Heart church on 16th and Park will do the traditional procession through Mt. Pleasant and Columbia Heights. The procession begins at the church at 8:30 p.m. Darrow Montgomery has a great set of photos from last year's procession, but it's worth seeing for yourself.

The Ron Moten show continues!
After Moten's confrontation fail with D.C. Council Chairman and mayoral hopeful Vincent Gray, Moten—whom Mayor Adrian Fenty wants more citizens to emulate—told a bunch of sweaty journalists that a) he's not a crook, and don't you dare call him a crony; B) Gray is a crook, and he will release the [...]
Did you rage this weekend? If not, did you get your living room spackled, sanded, and primed? Did you spend so much time listening to 105.9 the Edge that you found yourself thinking things like, On third listen, I adjudge that the bass line of "Living on a Prayer" is the most important part [...]

This is Snyder's team; he was intimately involved in assembling it. He keeps his favorite players on speed dial, watches practices on [...]
Good Friday, 1996
Driver Matt Kenseth, after winning the Daytona 500 by rainout, told a TV audience through tears that the victory was "a G moment."
I wasn't familiar with the phrase, but ran to Google to confirm that "G Moment" is a trademark of a sponsor.
Turns out it's from Gatorade.
Kenseth's plug was seamlessly delivered with the rest of [...]
In light of Barack Obama's decision to include Bishop Robinson in the Inauguration, as well as Dan Savage's quest to come up with a sex definition for "Saddlebacking", I thought I'd post a little update on Ted Haggard, the gay-bashing pastor who resigned from his church in 2006 after he was caught trading meth for [...]
In a thoroughly predictable turn of events, Hillary Clinton and Ron Paul were the write-in champions of 2008 (by all accounts a banner year for write-ins). That makes plenty of sense, given that both Clinton and Paul boasted die-hard adherents with a bit of a disenfranchisement complex.
