City Paper is not for tourists
In this week’s City Paper, you’ll find:
- Amanda S. Miller profiles Robert Jones, whose job it is to convince D.C. men to be better fathers to their children. Not an easy line of work.
- Jason Cherkis exposes how D.C. cops have refused to cooperate with city investigators looking into misconduct charges—and how the police department refuses to discipline them for it. Among the unanswered softballs: “What is your height and weight?”
- In Loose Lips: James Jones examines how east-of-the-river residents might have a point when they complain about Mayor Adrian Fenty not giving them their due—-few of his appointees are coming from Wards 7 and 8.
- In Show & Tell: Jessica Gould on how the Idiotarod fundraiser might have run afoul of stringent Adams Morgan liquor regs. Plus: Hank III is banned from the Black Cat!
- In Cheap Seats: Dave McKenna on the sad story behind a classic stadium tune—-“Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye.” Behind the music: a 37-year feud and oft-repeated story that may not be true after all.
- In Young & Hungry: Anne Marson on Il Mulino New York
- Plus film, music, theater, books, and more
