Capitol Hill’s Most Beautiful People Celebrate Beauty, Beautifully

Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton's legislative associate Jason Spear arrived at work Tuesday as usual.

Day Three at City Paper: Meet, Well, Me

I joined the Washington City Paper family this week, replacing the beloved Jule Banville, the recently departed asst. managing editor and D.C. brunch-culture-hater who was kind enough to leave in her office some very important things, such as an AP Stylebook, two dictionaries and a bottle of Tylenol.
