You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.

From MPD:

“Chief Lanier greets the newest member of the Force, Sam. Sam is a bloodhound and is trained to track human scent. While we have several dogs that are trained to conduct human tracks, this dog’s sole purpose is to track people- even over long distances. This will be especially helpful when looking for missing persons.”

From the Washington Post:

“The Washington Post Co. agreed Monday to sell its flagship newspaper to Amazon.com founder and chief executive Jeffrey P. Bezos, ending the Graham family’s stewardship of one of America’s leading news organizations after four generations.

Bezos, whose entrepreneurship has made him one of the world’s richest men, will pay $250 million in cash for The Post and affiliated publications.”
