Here are the five stories to read ahead of your evening commute:
• SNOW?!?! The odds of a highly unusual, though not unheard of, period of October snow have increased for northern and western parts of the D.C. region on Saturday. Ugh.
• From John Kelly’s column: “Joy Bricker certainly tested the limits of the ‘extended stay’ hotel. Ten years ago — on Aug. 4, 2001 — she checked into the TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Falls Church. Only now is she finally checking out.”
• Um. From Ashley Halsey III: “A veteran air traffic controller who directed Michelle Obama’s plane into the potentially dangerous turbulence of a massive military jet this year also made a mistake that nearly caused a midair collision involving a U.S. congressman last year.”
• More young adults are moving to D.C. (Guilty!) But does that actually make Washington “cool”? Take my highly unscientific poll.
• Redskins and their relationship with black fans. A poll and story from The Washington Post show that civic pride and family connection outweigh the Redskins’ sensitive racial history. The Root D.C.’s Robert Pierre has more to say.
