There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
I’ve had CDs that held BBs or coffee beans in their jewel-box spines. I’ve got box sets that include bottle-opener key chains, one with fuzzy dice. But the oddest lagniappe in my collection is this cockeyed 1977 charmer’s “hickory leaf” cut from downspout-extender plastic. Can’t get the sumbitch to play, though, and I’m getting dizzy. —Glenn Dixon
