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

  • Lightning struck a construction poll near Nats Stadium during the storm last night, perhaps in divine retribution against the awesome no-hitter from earlier this week (via DCist).
  • Former Obama speechwriter Chrysovalantis Kefalas wants to be first openly gay Republican senator, seeking election in Maryland (via Washingtonian).
  • There’s a bear on the loose in Fairfax County, apparently a juvenile who just left his mother, in sad yet somewhat relatable news (via WJLA).
  • In case you missed it, the sky was very pretty last night, right after violent thunderstorms provided some relief to the near-100 degree weather yesterday (via PoPville).
  • Heat Da Spot, a new cafe, is opening on Georgia Avenue, serving Ethiopian food on Sundays. Plus they’ve got a huge patio, talk about a win/win (via New Columbia Heights).
  • And finally, TV One will soon show a documentary about the Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown, and feature a variety of interviews with music historians, musicians, and even the late Marion Barry (via NBC Washington).
