• Jesse Jackson Sr. having a coffee shop meeting at the 15th St. NW Caribou midday Wednesday. Casual dress (no jacket or tie) but serious entourage — at least one ear-wired bodyguard in addition to the couple of colleagues he chatted with at one of those high tables. Seemed to be in a good mood: Stepped outside to take photos with fans, and doled out hugs to those who asked for a handshake.
