don’t mess with the district

I hadn’t seen today’s paper, so thanks to Erik who brought it to my attention: “District Warned On Gay Marriage.”

Home rule is one of the things that drives DC residents batty. We may not agree on the way to legitimize DC’s legal standing, but we do agree that it needs to be achieved. Because until it is, we legitimately are vulnerable to these sorts of threats made by people who have no reason being in our business.

As I was surfing around today, I chanced to discover that while I am in England next fall at a cousin’s wedding, the Fforde Ffestival will be taking place!

Clearly, wedding plans will take precedence, but if they happen to permit a little time spent being a book-geek for some of my favorite recent reads, then so much the better.

I have attended a Jasper Fforde reading before and he is absolutely hysterical. Possibly the funniest person I have ever seen in person, my friend BW aside. Funny enough that he could do stand-up, but if he did stand up he probably wouldn’t have time to sit and write, so forget that thought…
