City Paper is not for tourists
In the warm-off-the-presses neighborhoods issue and a recent City Desk post, I named some of the dead VIPs buried in Rock Creek Cemetery in Petworth: Teddy Roosevelt’s daughter, a former head of the National Geographic Foundation; and a guy responsible for giving the world Wonder Bread. I also mentioned that Gore Vidal has already set up his burial plot there.
Well, turns out Tim Russert has joined the DVIP crowd there.
In a chat at washingtonpost.com, Dana Milbank was asked where Russert would be buried.
Milbank said the site was kept hush-hush, but “a birdie told me it’s Rock Creek Cemetery.”
It’s a beautiful place to take a walk or spend all eternity.
