The Anti-Real World DC blog is gonna have to do better than this post:
“Deja vu? More like deja poo. See, I’ve already lived in a city that had a Real World house. I’ve already had to deal with reengineering my social life around 7 douchebags who fail to represent anything more than the sad part of America that can’t figure out how to have a life that isn’t documented for other peole who can’t figure out how to have a life. Was it frustrating? Absolutely. Annoying? Oh yeah. Did it improve or destroy my life and/or city? Nawwww. The last time I lived in a city with a RW house (I can’t believe I have a “last time,” it’s so sad), the house was on the otherside of the city from me and the most imposition I had was having to go to a different Starbucks a few time…”

The New Teacher On The Block does not welcome the idea of Fenty spending tons of money on an elementary school’s soccer field. They have strong words:
“Well, it wouldn’t be….except he gave the school $850,000 to BUILD A SOCCER FIELD. Now, I’m no expert on these things, but I am OUTRAGED at this pricetag. I cannot imagine why an elementary school needs that much money to build a soccer field that, according to a source at Murch, will feature TURF as opposed to grass. Is it just me, or is this another example of the wasteful and ridiculous spending that goes on in DCPS? I mean, take out the asphalt, put in some grass, paint some lines, and buy a couple of goals.
This money is enough to pay about 10 DCPS teachers a year, by my estimation.”
