Happy birthday to former mayor-for-life and current Ward 8 Councilmember Marion Barry, who turns 77 today.

“I look like I’m about 55 or 60. I don’t look 77.” Barry tells LL.

Asked what his plans are today, Barry says he’s going to grab some freshly fallen snow, mix in some sugar and vanilla, and enjoy “snow ice cream.”
