  • DC has adopted its first gay landmark! It is the second "official" gay landmark in America, right after the Stonewall Inn in New York and Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. [DCist]
  • Prince George County schools cut 800 jobs and more Maryland schools may cut "music and technology" programs. [Washington Post]
  • The terrorists are trying to smuggle pork sausages into America via Dulles airport. Uh, it is a non-kosher holy war of attrition, against the Jews. Bomb Iran? [WTOP]
  • The Metro is laying off about 40 people and some more who don't even know it yet, this in addition to the entire city that it already regularly disappoints. [DC Examiner]
  • Slate ran a Doonesbury comic strip making fun of the Washington Post, which owns Slate, and therefore that very Doonesbury strip. Slate is so punk rock. [Fishbowl DC]

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
