WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around D.C.) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy.
- A gift, from us to you, in the form of a guide on where to buy your Thanksgiving turkey if you’re thinking of going #local (via Washington Post).
- It’s getting more and more difficult for undocumented immigrants to receive D.C. driver’s licenses. D.C. is one of 10 states that issues these driver’s licenses (via WAMU).
- It’s here. No, they didn’t fix the Metro but D.C.’s first Chick-fil-A is up and running. A summary on the grand opening events: a lot of people waited in line overnight to get a year’s worth of free Chick-fil-A and in the end 100 people got their wish granted (via WTOP).
- Apparently Redskins fans are a bunch of cheeky drunks (that sounded weird, I’m sorry). But we’re (I watched a game once) only the ninth drunkest fans in the NFL, eight spots behind the Buffalo Bills (via Washingtonian).
- METRO UPDATE If trying to find a new Metro general manager was a relay race then Neal Cohen is trying to get rid of the baton that was just passed to him and run far, far away. He said he was “uncomfortable with the intense public scrutiny” that the position would entail (via WAMU).
- The mayor’s proposal to close D.C.’s biggest homeless shelter was just approved. On a scale of good to not-good news, this is more on the not-good side (via NBC).
- For how unsatisfied we are with the Metro, D.C. homeowners are pretty pleased with the city. D.C. is number three on the list of “best cities to own a home.” My theory is that if you’ve got enough $$$ you don’t have to rely on public transportation. Deductive reasoning?
