We dive deep on the day’s biggest story and share links to everything you need to know.

*Washington Post columnist Marc Fisher clocks in with a strong piece on the investigation that exonerated Prince George’s County police officers who stormed the home of Berwyn Heights Mayor Cheye Calvo.

*Compelling: A mini slideshow on documenting Ike’s doings in Texas.

*Enterprising: DC Teacher Chic works weekends! In this edition, she hammers a librarian who insults children. The rot!

*Emotional: Reaction to the David Foster Wallace news
