A.M. Buzz: Go-go to weekend revelry

Good morning. It’s the Friday before Labor Day and we’ll need to say farewell to summer with a weekend of revelry, so let’s get started.

Go-go to this: Now here’s an arts event that will speak to everyday Washington — photos of go-go musicians and fans, as well as the annual East of the River group exhibit. A month’s worth of concerts and adult classes also await you. Why bother with Friday in the face of all this?

Oh, you want to be serious? There will be a couple of court hearings that are likely to be newsworthy: a hearing on the Lululemon murder suspect in which the defense might request suppression of some evidence, and another hearing on whether the prosecution can retry Roger Clemens after it screwed up the last case.

We’re still dealing with the aftermath of the earthquake and hurricane. The National Cathedral added nets beneath the ceiling to protect people from any mortar chips that might fall during the Sept. 11 commemoration. And a 220-year-old oak at Arlington National Cemetery fell during last weekend’s storm.

That sea foam that drenched the Fox TV reporter last weekend in Ocean City was not sewage, the city insists; they had shut down the city’s treatment plant before the storm, and anyway, they never dump raw sewage into the water. Chances are, it was just sea foam.

BTW, bypass the local oysters.

Have a fantastic weekend. We’ll have plenty of reading and viewing for you on PostLocal so drop by anytime this weekend (you bring the beverages).
