3. Find a new picture of Cathy Lanier for our stepped-up coverage of Pershing Park (see Resolution No. 2). The ol’ smiling-Lanier-with-her-head-and-arms-sticking-out-of-the-car-window photo has gotten quite a bit of rotation on our blogs of late (and even before that). The repeated use yields the impression that we don’t have a deep archive of Lanier shots from various crime scenes, press conferences, etc. Accurate impression, but anyway.

4. Lay off Marion Barry. Writing about the former mayor and documented tax dodger is just too easy. So nothing more on earmarks, and certainly no more covers featuring pictures of him with ex-girlfriends with whom he attended, say, the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

Stay tuned to City Desk for the rest.
