DC News You Can (Maybe) Use
stephanie | Feb 15, 2012 | 4:10PM | Uncategorized

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:

  • Are you an area musician? Now’s your chance to play one of the District’s best traditions. No, really– get your demo together and get your band/self onstage at Fort Reno this summer. (via We Love DC)
  • Remember that terrifying crash in 2009? The deadliest D.C. metro crash in history? Right. Metro has finally settled almost all of the lawsuits from grieving families who lost loved ones. And yet it’s February of 2012 and there are still two more lawsuits. (via HuffPost DC)
  • Roseanne Barr (yup, the Roseanne) is sticking up for Occupy D.C. (via DCist)
  • Love it or hate it, looks like the Wal-Mart at H Street and NJ Avenue is breaking ground. (via Prince of Petworth)
  • D.C. residents use public transportation (roughly 25%!) more than metro area’s commuters. (via TBD)
  • If you happen to be one of said users–of the DC or metro-area variety–Metro is planning a few shutdowns this weekend. (via Washington Examiner)
  • One WUSA on-air reporter received threats after reporting on underage drinking in the DMV area. Angry teenagers and college students are lashing out at both the reporter and the station with responses to the story like, “Way to go! Not” … Well way to go being publicly obnoxious, kids. Stop complaining. (via Washington Post)
  • Though D.C. has an alarmingly high murder rate, most of the District’s crimes go unnoticed. Meet Laura Amico of Homicide Watch DC, a site entirely devoted to remembering and tracking every homicide in the city. (via Washingtonian)

  SAAM + BYT Present: Murder House Party A Renwick Gallery Murder is Her Hobby Opening! A murdery after hours featuring exclusive access to the BRAND NEW exhibition Murder is Her Hobby: Frances Glessner Lee and The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death! Frances Glessner Lee crafted her exquisitely detailed miniature crime scenes to train homicide investigators to “convict the guilty, clear the innocent, and find the truth in a nutshell.” These dollhouse-sized diorama composites of true crime scenes were the equivalent of virtual reality in their time, and helped to revolutionize the emerging field of forensic science. Constructed in the 1940s and 50s, they are still used to train homicide investigators today.
