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

  • People in D.C. actually placed their children in a sinkhole at the corner of G and 10th NE to get the government to fix it. They fixed it, and the children of D.C. no longer have to fear being put into a giant sinkhole by their parents. (Washington Post)

  • Former D.C. Mayor Sharon Pratt compared what’s been happening in Ferguson, Missouri to the response to riots in Mt. Pleasant 23 years ago. “Ultimately, as with Ferguson, we recognized that we had a deeper problem and we had to be more aggressive in owning up to the problem. And the leadership of the city had to say ‘We understand why you’re angry, this isn’t an appropriate behavior for your anger but we’re going to do something about it.’ So we did let them know in a more personal way that we heard them and we’d address their concerns,” said Pratt.

  • Coyotes are gettin’ busy in Fairfax County Parks, and that’s a really good thing. The numbers of coyotes in Virginia has been steadily declining since they’re considered a “nuisance” animal, and can be killed without a permit. (DCist)
