I hope it's not the Nationals promoting a Leinenkugel sampling as "craft beer" because Leinenkugel is as far from craft beer as it gets. And their beers suck.

And they are. LAME.

I highly recommend giving blood at the Nats Blood Drive. I gave at the one earlier in the summer.
I showed up without an appointment and still made it out of there in less than 40 minutes from start-to-finish. It's a very well-run affair, and you get free tickets, to boot.

Attended the Ward 6 debate last night. Robinson hit on the same talking point at least twice, possibly more - that Ward 3 schools rec'd more money than Ward 6 ones. "Bolstering" this point was that Ward 6 students were significantly below the poverty level (on average) vs. Ward 3 ones.
I felt this talking point, especially without other normalizing data (e.g. $/student and/or money spent vs. property taxes collected in the area) was just incendiary race-baiting politics. Even when one of the questions afforded him the opportunity to throw out further supporting data, he just railed on about "fair share" (i.e. we want someone else's money) and between that and his stance on gay marriage, and his total lack of knowledge on the CSX tunnel issue, I was extremely disappointed.
Wells, on the other hand, seemed to have the CSX talking points down pat, but seemed little interested in challenging the assumptions they made.

Does anyone know if Bob Siegel still lives on 5th Street SE? I have heard rumors that he his not going to run because he does not officially reside in that 5th street house, which he owns. I believe you need to reside in the SMD you run in for a period to qualify. Since I moved into the Capital Quarters Townhomes this spring on 5th street, I have never seen Mr. Siegel coming or going from the house. Does anyone know if Mr. Siegel actually lives in the SMD?

I, also, was at the Debate and was disappointed that Mr. Robinson did not know anything regarding the Virginia Avenue Tunnel project (CSX) and simply stated that he could not answer the question. His response should have been something along the lines of following up to educate himself and getting back to the Ward 6 residents in our area.
Also, If I understood him correctly, he wants equality but has a problem with gay marriage.

@5th Street, Bob responded to an e-mail of mine last week to say that he's planning on running. As for your other questions, I don't know, one way or the other....

Not sure about Siegel's residency issue but that is important.
It would appear from a cursory review of public records that he has also been having some cash flow issues based on the number of tax and utility liens on several properties he owns in the region, they all seem paid up at this point, but we are talking about some serious coin!

So, any word on Siegel's filings?
His residency is really looking suspicious, and given his behavior challenging his opponent in his last campaign I would hope he understands that folks who live in glass houses should defer from throwing rocks.
Hopefully he will be forthcoming and embrace the holy grail of transparency vs taking the typical DC approach of trying to steam roll the truth just because he can.
My sense is he is uncharacteristically low profile this last month, perhaps he understands his time in the shadows of everyday has come and gone and the glare of bright sunlight is not going to do him any favors?
