Get to know D.C. with our daily newsletter
We dive deep on the day’s biggest story and share links to everything you need to know.
Two years ago, I wrote the first post on this blog. Since then, City Desk has gone through a change or two. At first, us print-media troglodytes, like many before us, were under the impression that us real journalists need to be held to higher standards—-you know, every post would be well reported and thoroughly edited (by me).
That’s well and good, as long as three or five posts a day was a decent pace. Eventually, we figured out it wasn’t, so last year, we just said fuck it and opened the floodgates. Now we’re doing 10 posts or better a day and, judging by the numbers, we should have done that a long time ago.
Finally, on this occasion, let’s pour one out for the City Desk regular features we’ve lost over the past two years: Mayor’s Schedule, The ‘Huh?’ Bub, E-List Roundup, Scene & Herd, Hot Plate, The Road to 121 Losses, and last but not least, the Pay-What Roundup. Reminisce in the comments.
