  1. (Scroll down and read the third paragraph of Post #4) It's Attorneys General, not Attorney Generals. Now, if someone would only point me to the generally accepted rules for capitalization in titles, I would be in their debt. I don't know what they are, so I tend to capitalize most everything, sometimes making exceptions for words that are two-letters or less. The 1990 Iraq War changed the meaning of the term "decimate" forever. At least research the original etymology, and be aware that it has been bastardized within the past 25 years. This one bothered me for a long time, and is a concrete example that if you don't stand up early on and fight, things will slip away before your very eyes - forever.
  2. The washingtonpost.com comments section is filled with hundreds, if not thousands, of innocents, fools, and idiots. You have those who spend two hours writing "clever" limericks which might be at home in a weekly limerick competition. Intelligent people, but intelligence flushed down a black hole. You have those who think logical discourse will work, and that people will remember what they type five minutes after they type it. Logical, well-informed people, whose arguments are largely gone forever, yet who somehow think they influenced the world. Ugh, this is as painful as anything. And you have those who are there to defecate on the living room floor of their host's free party. This is why communities need light moderation - to prevent the trolls from taking control, or intimidate their best writers. It's pathetic.
  3. "Tom Sietsema Reviewed Eight DC-Area Caterers For Your Next Fancy Dinner Party" by Tom Sietsema on washingtonpost.com I enjoyed this feature in WaPo's magazine, although I agreed w/ the comment after the article that catered dinner for 8 is probably not a true test for a caterer, rather it's how well they can execute larger events. It's a nice fantasy piece, though, since not many people would spend 1K$ for a catered meal at home, most would probably host at a restaurant.
  4. This article is so incoherent in its criticism that it doesn't warrant a coherent response...but I'll waste 2 minutes on one anyway. Let's start here: Just to make it tough, I'll stick to an area 1 square mile from my house in NE DC. Charcuterie: Red Apron Coffee: Peregrine, Sidamo, Vigilante (hopefully coming soon) Bread: Lyon Bakery, Batter Bowl Bakery, Frenchies Cheese: Righteous Cheese, Cowgirl Creamery (1.9 miles from my house...the horror!!!) Ice Cream: Pitango Gelato, Dolcezza, Trickling Springs Creamery Produce: Almaala Farms, Eastern Shore Organic, H St. Farmer's Market, Join a freaking CSA As for a discernible tradition, I would offer that DC's seems to be journalists who ignorantly rant about the food scene of a city they clearly have no current knowledge of. Again, let's stick to NE/SE DC: Inexpensive: A Litteri, Mangialardo and Sons, Shawafel, Chupacabra, Neopol Smokery, Buffalo and Bergen, Red Apron, Taylor Gourmet, Taylor Charles Steak and Ice, Taste of Jamaica, Jam Duong Style, Little Ricky's, H & Pizza, Tortilla Cafe, Market Lunch Neighborhood: Red Hen, Boundary Road, Le Grenier, Hanks on the Hill, Beuchert's Saloon, Belga Cafe, Granville Moore's, Menomale, Toki Underground, Tash, Montmartre, Ethiopic Special Occasion: Atlas Room (could also fit in neighborhood). Head over the the dreaded NW, and you get The Source, Fiola, Corduroy, etc. Look, I moved here after living in the East Village of NYC for almost 10 years. I love the food scene in that city, and in that neighborhood in particular. DC is not NY, and I would hate it if it tried to be. DC is DC, and the food scene here is something to be proud of.
  5. I thought this was a good article in today's paper-http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/bethany-beach-rolls-out-the-red-carpet-for-military-families/2013/09/05/2cecbab6-1648-11e3-be6e-dc6ae8a5b3a8_story.html# We're a military family, & I realize we're lucky & haven't had any major crisis, aside from numerous deployments. This story really brought it home to me, how many families are dealing w/ problems that although they signed up for service, they may not have realized they'd be facing...this story almost restores my faith in people.
  6. In case anyone missed this in today's Washington Post Food Section--the cocktail column by Carrie Allen, one of the cleverest people I know. When Women Drink Alone
