Success! You're on the list.

After a week of Real World DC madness, the blog has transitioned back to its usual housing and development-related content. This week, we welcomed both “Proud Satanist” and “Proud Catholic” as commenters to the blog. Both of them were, of course, posting about Catholic Charities’ recent threat to stop running city-contracted social service programs if forced to extend employee benefits to married gay couples.  Look for more on the same-sex marriage legislation from my colleague The Sexist Amanda Hess this week. As for me, well Ask Housing Complex! is launching in the next few days—-should be fun, and by “fun” I mean “full of misery, which will hopefully lessened with sound advice.”
