Welcome to City Desk, Washington City Paper‘s new staff blog.

Here, CP staffers and contributors will be reporting and commenting on neighborhood news, politics, the media, the arts—pretty much all things D.C. except sex.

Expect crack reporting and sharp commentary from a group of journalists that knows our city better than any team out there. In the coming days, look for posts from Trey Graham on theater, Mark Jenkins on architecture and planning, Tim Carman on food, James Jones on D.C. politics, Erik Wemple on local media, and many more.

If you have any comments or tips, we’d love to have them.
