Where we talk about stuff (happening in and around D.C.) we didn’t write about but is still something you may care to get all riled about and comment on. So, without further ado – today, in other D.C. media sources:
- To start the day’s news off on a Debbie Downer note, the words “PIMP,” “TOILET” and “HEROIN” (among others) have been banned from license plates in Maryland. At least “BUTTS,” THEPUKE,” and “FATAZZ” are still (somehow) acceptable. (via Washington Post)
- If you hadn’t read earlier this afternoon, one of our contributors recently hit a bicyclist (eek), which only makes us wonder–what kind of cycling is the best and safest for D.C.? (via Washington City Paper)
- Yes, a D.C. medical marijuana program is on the way–but an ever-pending launch and a long list of shortcomings are proving more problematic than you might think. (via Washington Blade)
- In the strictest sense of the acronym, here’s a UFO sighting to the south of D.C.
- Apparently there’s a woman in Georgetown who throws her dog crap in the street/at passing bicyclists… so, you know, that’s a thing. (via Prince of Petworth)
- A THREE-DAY WEEKEND IS ALMOST UPON US and we are so excited for grilling/hanging out. Luckily, Washingtonian’s got a roundup of the best places in D.C. to buy your burgers this Memorial Day.
- Also just in time for Memorial Day: gas prices are down, which is phenomenal considering AAA’s prediction that over 34.8 million people will travel distances of 50 miles or more this weekend. (via TBD)
- And finally, here’s a skateboarding bulldog in Columbia Heights. HAVE A HAPPY TUESDAY.
