Virginia’s general assembly calls a special session to hash out an emergency transportation bill. They bickered, and couldn’t manage to get one passed. Still managed to bill the taxpayers $117,000 for the session, though.
D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty thinks you should take public transportation, so he’s going to make it damn-near impossible to drive in the city. As for him, he’ll still be taking his private car, and likely ignoring traffic lights and breaking speed limits when he does.

An undercover narcotics team in Sarasota, Florida stormed a McDonald’s over the weekend in an effort to arrest a man who’d just sold $950 worth of drugs to an informant. Said one customer, “”I thought it was a gang. I mean, they had masks and guns and I never heard anyone say, ‘police.’ I thought these guys were coming to rob us.” Thank goodness no one was carrying a concealed weapon. Was it really worth putting everyone in the restaurant at risk to nab a drug offender?
