WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around DC) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy…
- Stoked for Blast Off? YOU SHOULD BE. And if you’re still not sure what you should wear to the space themed extravaganza (shame on you), then check out this nifty generator.
- Trying (and failing) to get hired just because of some unsavory photos or comments online? There’s a guy fighting for your cause via hunger strike outside the Supreme Court building. Libertarians rejoice. [via The Washington Post]
- The White House is hosting its first ever Maker Faire, and OK Go is getting crafty.
- A suspicious package exploded in the Northeast. Investigators say an explosive device was secured underneath a car, but have yet to release any further information. This should, however, significantly reduce your frustration with this morning’s metro crowds. [via ABC Washington]
- Pete Cahall, the principle of Wilson High School, came out as gay today at a Pride Week event organized by students. Right on Mr. Cahall, right on. [via The Washington Post]
- Just when you thought school cafeteria lunches couldn’t get any grosser: Prince William County schools will not sell milk for the rest of the week after tests confirmed they received a shipment of prematurely spoiled milk. All of the nope. [via NBC Washington]
- Crazy strong thunderstorms from the Midwest are headed towards DC. No one really knows how the storm system will behave once it gets here, though, so stay alert…maybe? [via ABC]
- Oh, and by the way, no advances have been made on that godforsaken streetcar. Stick to the metro, kids. [via Washington City Paper]
