It's a been a nice respite from stadium news over the past few days, but we're back in the groove now with "Official Promises To Deliver Stadium" from Tuesday's Post, focusing on DC Sports and Entertainment Commission head Mark Tuohey. But, believe it or not, some council members are quoted as criticizing the stadium deal. Tuohey says they'll deliver a deal this week; we shall we....  UPDATE: Backtracking a few days, Jack Evans sounded a whole lot less optimistic on Friday, as quoted in the WashTimes's "Evans: MLB Won't Pay", indicating that they are still two votes short of the seven needed to pass the lease agreement.

I have so very many photos of Near Southeast that I've never posted, but as a block or corner begins to get developed I look through them a lot to see if there's any angle that maybe I'd now like to show. I've been doing this lately as 20 M Street's construction continues, and as I've browsed through my pictures of Half and M lately, something started to jump out at me from the edges of some of the shots, something that it now appears I've been unintentionally tracking for the past three years. So, I bring to you: Gas Prices at Half and M. No pressure, Sunoco!

Marriott's web site now has a page for the "Courtyard by Marriott Washington Capitol Hill/Navy Yard", and the page says "Opening in March 2006." You can't reserve a room yet, but at least it's there now. See my Capitol Hill Tower page for photos, detail, etc.
