Chatter: Election Racket

Hoping for a more civil mayoral primary than the last one? Tough luck, if the comments on last week’s Loose Lips column are any indication. Wherever you belong in D.C.’s social strata, you almost certainly came off sounding horrible. “As long as 50 percent of the city believes in stuff like The Plan, or generally has [...]

Precisely how wasn’t clear—ideas included declaring every city employee essential or just staying open and challenging the Department of Justice to prosecute the mayor and Council. Watching [...]

D.C., Free?

As the shutdown dragged on, the mayor complained louder and louder: “We’re governed by the federal government’s action and unless the federal government authorizes it, D.C. workers are going to be in a bind.” Shuttered museums had local businesses worried about a drop in tourism. And Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton called it a “very special [...]
