There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
In this week’s City Paper, you’ll find:
- Illustrator Greg Houston and reporter Arthur Delaney—you might remember them from a previous collaboration—together documenting the workings of the D.C. Superior Court from an inmate’s-eye view
- Amanda Miller on how Kelly Miller Middle School, one of DCPS’ newest, came without a few necessities. Like a fence for the playground.
- In Loose Lips: James Jones on why Kwame Brown becomes a committed women’s-libber every time Max Brown gets a mayoral appointment. Plus: accounts of throwdown at the D.C. Young Dems meeting and how the District’s best government spokesperson nearly lost his job.
- In Show & Tell: Jessica Gould on how artist Doug Sanford made a bad breakup even worse: He turned photographs of his ex’s angry e-mails into his latest show. And, no, she ain’t down with that.
- In Cheap Seats: Dave McKenna on the jet-setting ways of a pair of local Madden video-game experts. If you want to be the best, you’ve got to be willing to travel.
- In Young & Hungry: Anne Marson on the volunteer labor that keeps Shaw’s Thai X-ing afloat.
- Plus film, music, tons of theater, Jeffry Cudlin on the Jasper Johns show, and more
