I’ve lived in the District now for 11 years — four years in college (no, those don’t really count) plus six years as a reporter and editor at Washington City Paper, including two-and-a-half writing the venerable Loose Lips column before joining The Washington Post.
My nonpolitical interests extend to Hoyas basketball, White Sox baseball and any foodstuff that oozes orange grease. I live in Ward 1, work in Ward 2 and do my drinking in Ward 6. I get unusually excited by maps, trains and sprawling industrial operations. In the great drivers-vs.-bikers debate, you’ll never pin me down: I drive a little, but ride my beat-up road bike more.
