When it came time for NPR to move buildings in Washington, D.C., we couldn’t think of a better band than OK Go to help us out, which resulted in the most ridiculous Tiny Desk Concert ever.

    This appears to be the new iconic Georgetown photo opportunity

    In ten minutes near the fountain at Georgetown Waterfront Park yesterday, I saw at least dozen versions of this “run under the jets” photo, including multiple takes from several subjects.

    Well, it’s no sitting on John Carroll’s lap, or in the big green chair at Duke Ellington High School, but it beats standing in front of Georgetown Cupcake, blocking the bike lane.

Hey DC residents, don’t forget to vote today! (And tell your friends, too). 
Polls are open until 8 pm, and if you don’t vote, it’s less effective to complain when you don’t like things that the DC Council decides! (And if you didn’t know, this is a special election for the Councilmember At-Large seat previously held by now-chair Phil Mendelsohn). 
- If you don’t know where your polling place is, find out here: http://www.dcboee.org/voter_info/find_pollingplace/
 - If you are not registered to vote in DC and would like to register, you can register at your polling place by bringing a government ID with your address, or one of the following (with your address):Current lease or utility bill, bank statement, government issued check, paycheck/stub with your name and address, or other government issued document that shows your name and address
- If you’re not sure who to vote for, here’s a voter guide that DCist put together, which gives some brief snapshots of the field and links to all of the candidates’ websites and other sources of information, as well as providing some information on today’s ballot initiative for a Home Rule Charter amendment.

    A gorgeous morning to get up early and ride down to the Tidal Basin and along the Potomac for the cherry blossoms. 

    If you like these, I have a few more photos from the morning up on Flickr.

    Thank goodness for jacquesofalltrades and his photography skills!

The scene outside the Supreme Court this morning. A historic day in the fight for equality!

Let’s do this, SCOTUS.

Feminists Install Temporary Memorial to Rape Survivors on Washington Mall





by Sarah Mirk on February 15, 2013 - 10:34am


The National Mall got a new memorial yesterday, if only briefly. As part of One Billion Rising, Baltimore-based feminist group FORCE installed a temporary memorial recognizing survivors of sexual assault. The group greated giant letters out of a statement from a rape survivor and floated the eight-foot-tall words onto the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial.
