Remember how I said black people weren't going to go for Mitt Romney just because the president completed his "evolution" on same-sex marriage? The Informer endorses President Barack Obama's stance:
There will be those who seek to use this issue to divide our community. As a people, we cannot afford such division. It is our hope that conversations [...]
I guess the Post has to do this kind of story, but anecdotal evidence that some area blacks won't support Barack Obama because of his newfound support for gay marriage is really useless. What would be useful is polling data, and I'd be shocked if Obama took even the slightest hit among black voters.
And let's be [...]

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT—"City FC Builds Hearts, Minds, and Soccer Fields," "Another Blaze Scorches Joe Englert's Boozy Empire," "Was Robert Wone Killed By Martial Arts Expert?," "World Cup [...]
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 [...]
WaPo thinks the real test for Mayor Adrian Fenty comes right now during your morning commute. He's already failed mine. While I haven't walked to WCP headquarters just yet, I can bet that the last bit of sidewalk on Mount Pleasant Street hasn't been cleared nor has the mucky stretch of park nor the bus [...]
A reader who sent these two photos from two different Wednesday editions thinks so. I asked a Post spokesperson when these editions are published, but she tells me, "we don’t disclose that information." I'll bet the first lady wishes they disclosed even less!
Obama called for comity! Alito mouthed "You are a liar!"* Around the one-hour mark, I started looking at snow shovels on acehardware.com! THE STATE OF THE UNION IS STRONG.
During his speech, the president decried Washington's "perpetual campaign where the only goal is to see who can get the most embarrassing headlines about the other [...]
*Checked out NBC Washington's new "Moods"/Washington Is... section? I hadn't! (Sorry, vacay.) Definitely interactive. Also, leads to hilarious/tacky catchphrases at the top of the homepage (see above). My problem with this is the same problem I have with "viewers' choice awards" on reality TV shows. (Full disclosure: don't watch many reality TV shows.) The whole [...]
This guy isn't even the craziest asshole attending these health-care town halls.
Good Morning, City Desk Readers! The big news today is presidential, of course, but poor Barack Obama got usurped on his birthday by America's other First Black President. Bill Clinton is receiving all the accolades today after his trip to North Korea, where he met with President Kim Jung Il and helped negotiate the pardoning [...]
The economy might be in the dumps but it’s turning into a stellar year for consumer scams … and government plans to combat them.
First, this just came in from one of the Metropolitan Police Department’s Yahoo groups: Beware of the telephone shysters posing as sales reps for the FBI. No, silly! Not the real Federal Bureau of [...]
The big news in Washington this morning was already shared with City Desk readers early yesterday evening: Senator John Ensign (R-Nev.) admitted to having an affair with a campaign staffer. There's no word on whether Ensign plans on resigning but he wishes he could take it all back. Obviously. He was a member of the [...]
From WeLoveDC's twitter: "Wow. It's 11:50, and there are 32 people in line *outside* Rays Hell Burger. Not even noon yet!" Thank you Obama.
It's been established that wherever Obama goes, the tour buses and locals will follow, temporarily ruining eating for everyone who doesn't like to wait in long lines for half smokes or [...]
