I knew the Belvedere Hotel couldn't keep up with the Willard any more than Fort McHenry and the Lincoln Memorial should be allowed in the same sentence. When I attempted a little Baltimore aside about the Cone Sisters, he nodded quickly and moved on to the majesty of the National Gallery.
Baltimore and the District of Columbia are alike in that they want answers and a greatly reduced violent crime rate. What is clear is that a one size fits all approach will not work to stop the increased violent crime in both cities.
Wouldn't it be great to celebrate black people, just for being black? Nothing is more positive than flipping the script. Where there is oppression, we will uplift. And where there is hate, we'll inject love.
This decision is a resounding victory for homeless families based not just on esoteric interpretations of law, but on a common understanding of basic human rights that must be protected for all DC residents, no matter their income.
A MOST -- called a MOLST or POLST in other places -- guides conversations between a patient and the patient's medical team about specific treatment options and interventions in light of the expected course of the condition.
Taking down the confederate flag is a constructive and symbolic financial decision for most corporations. Actually ceding power and income to workers, to pay taxes for education for all, to negotiate with workers as equal partners, those acts will be much harder to achieve.

At a time when we should be celebrating Medicaid and CHIP successes, serious threats to Medicaid, CHIP and the ACA continue to surface in Congress. So, in addition to advocating for continuing improvements in children's health coverage, we must also play defense to protect the hard-earned gains made for children as well as adults.
Jury duty is a valuable form of community involvement. Without jurors there would be no jury trials, and without jury trials we would lose an effective and fair way to seek justice and hold members of the community accountable.

The District of Columbia's economy is thriving, but not all residents benefit from the boom in development and the disparities are staggering. Over 60,000 District residents lack a high school diploma or equivalent degree, a significant barrier to economic security.
