Apparently, some people want to recall D.C. mayor Anthony Williams. A friend -- new to the area -- asked, "OK, so why didn't they recall that other mayor? The one that smoked crack?" It's very simple, really: Marion Barry may have smoked crack, but Anthony Williams favors a school voucher plan.
Personally, our only interest in the recall Williams movement is in what celebrity they'll get to replace him. Are there even any celebrities who live in the District? (Please, politicians don't count.) This may be the first good reason I've heard to bring back "K Street" -- George Clooney could run. As it is, we may be stuck with Craig T. Nelson, who at least lives in the District on TV.
