I was on the Metro reading and loving the fascinating story on Dinah Washington (“Queen for a Day,” 8/20). It wasn’t until later when I was telling someone about it that I saw the byline—Eddie Dean. It is great to see him back in the Washington City Paper. He is a very talented writer.

The article really made my day. I remember as a kid how my older brothers and sisters loved Washington. Thank you.
