Here we go

Kriston over at g.p. polices my piece on Pete Panse and writes that it would be "disturbing, if true."

Read his case endorsing Panse's suspension here and my comments as well, as I think that Kriston actually helps my case!

Disturbing, period.

Gazette on the Bethesda Art Walk

The Gazette has a nice piece on tomorrow's Bethesda Art Walk.

Read it here.

A little help

DC you're letting me down!

Yesterday I brought you the case of Pete Panse and asked you to sign an online petition to help this gentleman get his job back.

And yet only a handful of DC, MD and VA signatures appear on the petition so far, and most of them are from fellow bloggers.

C'mon! Go here and sign the damn petition!
