Not that type of service:
DC Attorney General Irv Nathan is suing a nonprofit for allegedly using city money to build a strip club
. The group won $10 million in grants to provide residential services for HIV/AIDS patients. (DCist)
Tighter rules for nonprofits?:
DC Council rules require members to disclose personal and spousal business relationships but do not include nonprofits
. Kwame Brown's and Harry Thomas's wives work for nonprofits that receive city money but neither disclosed it. (WAMU)
Improve a small triangle:
A resident wants to improve the triangle park
at 8th and K Streets and West Virginia Avenue, NE, and has started a blog to discuss it. Fortunately, it's city-owned rather than federal, meaning elements not present in 1929
can be considered. (K Street Triangle via Frozen Tropics)
Greater Washington is majority minority:
Census data show that minorities are the majority population
in the Washington region. The distribution is not equal but is changing the economic and political future of the region as a whole. (Post)
