WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around DC) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy.
- Kicking off with some bummer news, Smithsonian just announced the death of its 23-year-old Przewalski horse. Feel a little better with this brand new video of the panda cub, though. (via Twitter)
- The woman who vandalized the National Cathedral (and is suspected of vandalizing the Lincoln Memorial) is now in a psychiatric ward. (via Huffington Post)
- Hey, fools! September is National Yoga Month here in DC. Here are six ways to get your celebration/participation/savasana-tion on. (via Washingtonian)
- In transportation news, two Red Line Metro cars jumped the track last night causing some serious issues today. Check out the details on alternate transportation and shuttles right here. (via WJLA)
- Still not enough transportation for ya? Another tidbit in today’s latest is that if you are an asshole driver, you’ll have more eyes on you shortly. Cops are installing cameras to catch drivers who don’t fully stop at stop signs, don’t yield to pedestrians and block intersections. (via NBC 4)
- Have you checked out Mutiny’s new trade publication? It’s a gorgeous collection of essays and photos focusing on skilled craftsmen in jobs that have been overlooked and unappreciated of late. Their first volume is dedicated to the butcher and it’s beautiful. Go read it. (via Mutiny)

- A word to the wise: more people in and around the District are predicted to travel this Labor Day than last year, so be sure to stay up to date with Washington Post’s traffic/travel changes.
