Logan Circle Robbery Video Taken Off YouTube

The YouTube clip of a Logan Circle robbery that we've all been gawking at this week has been taken down. The Metropolitan Police Department had posted the security camera footage of two men being robbed while they dined al fresco at Pizzoli's Pizzeria on 12th Street NW on its YouTube channel, racking up more than 24,000 views and [...]

Metro Bad News Roundup: Service Dog Stand-Off, “Going Crazy” Edition

The Metro system, once a reliable point of pride for D.C.'s boosters, has had a rough few years: Safety problems, escalator outages, and rising prices have made the subway a regular subject of local griping. At times, it can be hard to keep up with the torrent of unflattering Metro-related scoops. As a public service,Washington [...]

Councilmember Tommy Wells Sends Check to Graham Challenger

Remember the Paul Wellstone-esque video by Ward 1 Council candidate Bryan Weaver we highlighted here a few weeks ago? On Washington City Paper's Loose Lips blog, Jason Cherkis reports it's getting results—Councilmember Tommy Wells sent Weaver a $100 check after seeing the video. Wells hasn't given any money to his council colleague Jim Graham, who Weaver hopes [...]

Hear Dave McKenna (And Riggo) On TV

City Paper's Cheap Seats columnist Dave McKenna will appear on MASN tonight at 5 p.m., on the John Riggins Show, which the network just brought back (perhaps because Riggo's collection of YouTube rants about the Redskins were such a hit last season). The show will also be broadcast on the radio, on WTOP-3, the all-news [...]

Our Morning Roundup: Metro Gladiators Edition

WTTG-TV brings us shocking–shocking!–video this morning of rowdy Metro riders engaged in fisticuffs and other horseplay. It's "an ongoing problem," according to the local Fox News affiliate. (Albeit a big boon to YouTube.)

More Footage of College Park-Area Chaos

Prosecutors in Prince George's County are considering whether to file charges against police officers involved in the highly publicized beating of University of Maryland student John J. McKenna during a raucous campus-area celebration of the Terapins' basketball victory over Duke on March 3, WTOP reports.
Footage of the incident, released yesterday by McKenna's attorney, has now [...]

Fire Chief Dennis Rubin Also Not A Fan Of ‘Cocksucker’

I almost feel sorry for Fire/EMS Chief Dennis Rubin. A video deposition he had taken in a whistleblower case has now landed on YouTube. In early October, the Government Accountability Project deposed Rubin in connection with a civil suit brought by former Fire Department Deputy General Counsel Theresa Cusick. In the interest of fairness, the [...]

The Mystics President and Her Mock-aca Video

Sheila Johnson has jumped in some hot water that she can't swim out of.
The Washington Mystics have been rotten throughout Johnson's run as team president, having finished in the bottom half of the WNBA's Eastern Conference all five seasons under her, and not winning even a single playoff game.
But Johnson has gotten a pretty free [...]

Race-Baiting, Political Opportunism and Child Exploitation!

OK, so it's actually just another attempt at guerilla theater-marketing: Charter Theatre honcho Keith Bridges stars (alongside actor-playwright Chris Stezin) in a 7-minute drama about why Charter won't be staging Richard Washer's Quartet, originally announced for the new-play specialists' January-February slot.
Watch (agog) as Bridges explains his emergency back-up plan to his 3-year-old daughter Rosie: "Sweetie, [...]

Via Boing-Boing, this Firefox plug-in, which conveniently hides the YouTube comments least likely to be useful–those filled with misspellings, profanity, you know, Internet talk. What I'd love is a plug-in that worked on every site, so I'd never again have to read "Slow news day?" or "FAIL" or anything by Don Smith.
I kid, Don, I [...]

I'm probably the last person to see this, but I still think it's worth posting. This video provides enough reason for people to use better bike locks (and use them correctly).
