Jack B. Johnson sentenced to 7 years; obligatory snow update (#PMBuzz)


(Mark Gail - THE WASHINGTON POST)
Here’s our roundup of news stories to read ahead of your evening commute:

Johnson sentenced to 7 years in prison. The former Prince George’s County executive masterminded a far-reaching conspiracy that netted him as much as $1 million in bribes and implicated his wife and several developers, county officials and businessmen.

Obligatory possible snow update: The snow threat remains for Wednesday night, but for most of the region, the event will probably be a minor one. Any snow is likely to end before the Thursday morning commute.

This trend is catching on quick. In honor of finals season, the College of William and Mary library will be open for 125 straight hours this week. But the most coveted study rooms have already been claimed by students in sleeping bags. You might say they’re “occupying” the library.

Babbitt out. Three days after his arrest on a drunk driving charge in Fairfax, Randy Babbitt resigned Tuesday as head of the Federal Aviation Administration.
