Good morning, City Desk readers.
- Here’s what’s new in the Washington Post’s crime section: Kristopher Baumann, “chairman of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 1,” is worried that extending operating hours for bars during inauguration week will tax the police force and prevent them from responding effectively to incidents in other parts of the district. In case you missed it yesterday, the MPD has made some progress on the July shootings in Trinidad. And in Wheaton, an 83-year-old woman’s death by fire is being ruled a homicide. (Maybe it’s time revisit Letters From an Arsonist?)
- Don’t you hate it when a blogger whose work you really like goes out and writes a book, and then stops blogging? I felt that way about Stuff White People Like. But it’s back! Check out this entry about national criminal defense.
- Our neighbors at George Mason University have some interesting thoughts on the bailout.
- New marriedtothesea.com & new FreakAngels.
