WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around D.C.) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy:

  • This is your long read of the day. It involves Nazi art and a Virginia army base, and if that doesn’t grab you, I don’t know what will. (via Washingtonian)
  • A Bethesda church is fighting to stop a historic cemetery from being turned into a parking garage. As a huge fan of cemeteries (they’re great! Check them out!) this is very upsetting. (via WAMU)
  • It was so cold this weekend we set a new record. (via Post)

  • Mayor Bowser is holding a “rat walk” today. I don’t know what that is (and I don’t really want to know), but anything that helps are rat problem seems chill. (via WJLA)
  • The Watergate has installed luxury igloos on the roof. The Watergate is a deeply weird place. The last time I was there I spent the night talking to a magician the hotel had flown in from LA. (via Washingtonian)

  • Former U.S. transportation secretary Ray LaHood argues that Metro needs dedicated funding and should maybe raise the bus fare. I remember when the bus used to cost $1.50. I feel so old. (via Post)
  • Montgomery County is raising their minimum wage to $15. (via WJLA)
  • 160 people got the stomach flu after visiting a food festival in Ocean City, Maryland and I could not be less surprised. (via WTOP)
