A.M. Buzz: News redux

It’s not over til it’s over: The Prince George’s County building in Upper Marlboro will be closed today while the county cleans up from last week’s flooding.

It’s still not over: The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial dedication has been reset to Oct. 16. We should be past the flood and deluge stage by then, shouldn’t we?

Healthy living can be dangerous: A man competing in the Nation’s Triathalon pulled up to an emergency station five miles into the bicycling stage and said he didn’t feel well. He then had a heart attack and died shortly thereafter at Sibley Memorial.

Residents of Tysons Corner neighborhoods are in for a long stretch of difficulty as developers prepare for the extension of Metro.

I abhor the buzzy, celebrity-focused, meme-a-moment culture that has taken over certain users of the Internet, sadly including some once-respectable news organizations. (Please note: so-called “experts” learn of their topic and “research” them no more than two hours before airtime.) So perhaps that’s why I never heard of Krystal Ball.

We’ll have real, honest-to-God news on PostLocal today. Stop by and see what a hearty news diet can do for you.
