Randy Cassingham produces a weekly email column called THIS IS TRUE which focuses on the insane and inane in life. This weeks had a moment we probably could have lived without: a mention of Marc Fisher’s column drawing attention to the signs placed around town during Inauguration week that said “This area has been declared a PROSTITUTION FREE ZONE.” Cassingham is amused by Fisher’s observation that, if you are pointing out that this area is a protitution free zone, are the other areas not?

I’d post the paragraph from This is True directly, but the footer of Cassingham’s newsletter very stridently says “ALL broadcast, publication, retransmission to e-mail lists, WWW or any other copying or storage, in any medium, online or not, is STRICTLY PROHIBITED… MANUAL FORWARDING by e-mail to friends is allowed IF 1) the text is forwarded IN ITS ENTIRETY, from the “Since 1994″ line on top through the end of this paragraph.”

Don’t worry, you’re not missing much. Cassingham doesn’t link the Fisher’s article or, for that matter, even identify Marc Fisher by name.

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.
