It’s the spineless hour on the Kojo Nnamdi show!

While taking a quick drive out of the office to pick up some Five Guys I had the dubious pleasure of listening to Kojo talk to Marie Johns, who would like to be DC’s mayor in the future. While she was waxing poetic about setting an example for our children, Kojo asked her what seems to me like a simple question: Do you think, in light of the charges, that Marion Barry should resign from the council?

Too bad she’s too much of a spineless wuss to answer the question either way, any of the four-plus times Kojo asked her. She found time to repeat herself about setting an example and mention that Barry is a “hero in this community to many,” repeatedly. I assume the extended version of that is “a hero in the community to enough people that I won’t risk even a single vote by commenting one way or the other.” Of course she also seems to lack the spine to simply refuse to commit until more certain information is out, or even question the point of the war on some drugs.

If you’d like to torment yourself by hearing Marie Johns speak at length without ever saying anything, you can listen when the download is available in a few hours.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
