After the census: D.C. bloggers react

D.C.’s Bloomingdale is one neighborhood that has seen increasing diversity, according to new census numbers. (Matt McClain/Washington Post)

The DCist led its morning headline roundup with Barry’s comments to The Post — “I believe in integration, but I don’t believe in the apartheid we have in Ward 8” — as well as the council member’s quotes in the Examiner that he would like to see Ward 8 expand during redistricting.

Beyond DC focused on Barry’s suggestion that Prince George’s County is D.C.’s Ward 9: “Arlington is an obvious contender. ... Maybe arguments could also be made for Silver Spring, or Baltimore, or — who knows — Denver.”

Meanwhile, Georgetown Metropolitan ponders what led to the neighborhood’s “astounding” growth. (Notes GM: It’s not just the students.)
