In this week’s City Paper, you’ll find:

  • Sarah Godfrey on former child actress LaShayla Logan‘s struggle to get her life and career back on track.
  • Angela Valdez on how the D.C. Jail’s chapel has been closed to Protestants, leaving the jail’s largest worship population to hold services on cellblocks.
  • Jonathan York on the lengths the city’s Public Defender Service goes to in order to keep reporters out of otherwise open proceedings.
  • In Loose Lips: James Jones on a hangout for Capitol Hill bigwigs that for months flouted the District’s smoking ban. Plus: Fenty’s underwhelming first State of the District speech.
  • In Cheap Seats: Dave McKenna with more on how the killer of former Falls Church soccer star Steve Cornejo was finally brought to some justice—-in a civil courtroom.
  • In Show & Tell: Jessica Gould on the rising scourge of D.C. nightlife: the glass beer bottle
  • In Young & Hungry: Tim Carman on Jack’s Restaurant and Bar, the successor (in more ways than one, unfortunately) to the famously bad restaurant Le Pigalle
  • Plus film, music, lots of theater, books, and more
