Fenty and Johns

Adrian Fenty and Marie Johns are planning to line up in opposing quadrants of the city this weekend and shout at each other. Apparently, there’s a scheduled debate between them this Saturday, but Fenty will be in Southeast, while Johns is in Northwest. More disturbing, though, is the quote from the Johns camp that insinuates that Southeast is “unreachable by the media.”

Why is that, Liz Rose? Why did you say: “Since he agreed to debate us, and he selected the time and the date as 9 a.m. on a Saturday, we would like to do this debate at a place where the media can get there.”

Did you mean to insinuate that Southeast isn’t a place that people can go freely? Or without danger to their very lives? Because that’s exactly what you just said in the subtext. Are the Johns campaign afraid of the 7th and 8th Wards?
