DeMorning Links: #dciswhereskinsbelong

Last night’s Super Bowl awakened some heretofore dormant emotions inside D.C. Council member and former Mayor Marion Barry, who has long harbored a deep attraction to the pomp and spectacle of America’s dominant sporting event. In addition to a dim assessment of the hometown squad’s current prowess, Barry subsequently added a dim assessment of Redskins owner Dan Snyder. That opinion, however, may complicate his hashtag-based wishes: “There’s always next season for us. If we beat the Giants, it’s in us to take it all the way next time. #dciswhereskinsbelong”
