From the Blade to the Agenda


If you missed seeing mention of it on the twitter account (before it was deleted/renamed) or in City Paper, you could hear Kevin Naff confirm on the Kojo show: the new venture that he and other former Blade staffers are starting up will be called the DC Agenda. They’ll put out what they call a “modest” first issue this Friday which could very well be little more than a slim zine to let people know they exist.

For the five of you who don’t get it, the name is a sly joke on the epithet “the gay agenda,” which has also been riffed on in a fair amount of humor. My favorite is above but plenty are out there. Good luck to Naff and the other former Bladers!

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.
