I just can't bear to go completely dark for too many days in a row, so here's some light reading for your post-turkey haze:
* Today's Washington Business Journal looks at the plans for the return of streetcars to DC
, a very long-term project that could eventually have light rail running down M Street SE
and across both the 11th Street and Douglass
bridges. But that's a loooong ways off--first they have to finally get a long-delayed test line in Anacostia off the ground, and then the H Street NE corridor would be next. There used to be a good web site on the project at DCTransitFuture.com, but that site is now hijacked with a fake blog, so the best I can give you is this DDOT page
with a few links.
* There's also a WBJ article
on PNC Bank securing the naming rights to the Diamond-level seats (the second priciest) and the club lounge at the ballpark
. Still no word on naming rights for the stadium itself, though a few weeks ago we heard
that there might not be a sponsor during the inaugural season.
