Morning Roundup: Suck It, Chris Matthews Edition

CHRIS MATTHEWS PLAYED HARDBALL last night with the District, pounding Fenty like back-to-back snowstorms. D.C., said Matthews, has "the weather of Buffalo with the snowplowing capability of Miami."

Morning Roundup: A Pickup Truck, Pot, and a Mercedes-Benz

The producers of the movie liked Riggs' review so much they excerpted it on their movie poster, an excerpt of which you can see above. Interesting thing about that review, [...]

Mike Riggs for CEO

Our wacky company. Jesus, our wacky company. Today was the day a judge in Florida was due to decide how best to conduct an equity auction next month that'll presumably end our company's nearly yearlong journey through bankruptcy. She kind of punted.
But: Talk about burying the lede! Following the ruling, Creative Loafing CEO Ben Eason [...]

It’s the “Apartment Building Inaugural Ball”

Though I'm no inaugural historian, I'm just going to bet that the following scenario has never played out before in the history of Jan. 20ths:
Some people who live in an apartment building finish the holiday season with some extra wine that they never cracked. They look at the calendar, see that the inauguration is coming [...]
