Random Reader Rant and/or Revel

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 rejoice about daily life in DC.

Wishing those who observe a Sweet and Happy New Year. Mayor Gray adds his wishes via a press release:

I would like to offer my fondest greetings to the District’s Jewish community as the High Holy Days begin. The period that begins with Rosh Hashanah and culminates with Yom Kippur is a time to reflect on the Jewish principle of tikkun olam – repairing the world through acts of service, justice and kindness – and to resolve to lead our lives anew with a focus on doing justice and loving kindness.

The Jewish community has, for well over a century and a half, been an integral part of the District of Columbia and the United States, and I am personally thankful for the innumerable contributions of Jewish people to our communal cultural, civic and social life.
