DCeptette: Victims of a grim duality version.

  1. Gwendolyn Hemphill. First she said she was too stupid to have embezzled all that coin. Now she says she's ashamed. But the most important thing is that she's guilty. And headed for 11 years in stir. Tell 'em how you stole from the children, Gwennie, and don't ever come back. [Washington Post]
  2. Gossip wars, huh? Well, it's Hoos before hoes at the DCeiver, so you know we have Amy Argetsinger's back. It's curious, though, that Karen Feld even rates a mention in the article. She's done? Who even noticed? In the war on gossip, Feld was a conscientious objector. And, bear in mind, I've always felt that it's in everyone's best interests to allow blithering idiots to be conscientious objectors. [FishbowlDC]
  3. This will probably be the least effective Missed Connection ever. [Craigslist]
  4. Mike Grass already captured my elegant disdain of people like this: provincial dweebs who move to your city, never leave their block, and then hold out their provincial dweebiness as a badge of honor. Me, I suck the marrow out of the entire Metro area, and what's more, I aim to have baggage claims with exotic names. Heh. Get some game outside your own zipcode, and then you can talk to me. [DC Urban Cloister]
  5. So the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Nationals square off in '06 and the Nationals get a measure of revenge over Peter Angelos and his strongarm ways. Who did we root for? Uhm, fuck them both. Go Cardinals! [Washington Post]
  6. People always talk about how the Democratic party's longstanding DC hegemony has ultimately been bad for the city--sheer electoral success has transcended, even supplanted, the need for efficacy. We try to put a good spin on it, but every once in a while, they go out and basically do something that really does prove that their heads are happily up their own asses. [DCist]
