An informational announcement: Because very super-awesome The Root D.C. is now featured in the Friday dead-tree Metro section real estate my not-a-column previously occupied, my stuff is moving to Wednesdays. But there’s some great stuff on B2 today, including an account from a D.C. native about what it’s like to get back to work after years in prison and months of unemployment, and what looks to be a killer recipe for Buffalo chicken dip. And on B1, Root D.C. contributor Chris L. Jenkins covers one man’s simple plan for Ward 7 neighborhoods: “Make sure that children who live in the troubled communities east of the Anacostia River see welcoming black male faces on their way to school in the mornings.”
