Does D.C. have its own cultural identity?
The question, of course, is loaded, largely, I think, because it's often leveled by those many transients who sponge off D.C. for a few years (mostly in NW) and complain loudly that we have no identity. Personally, I've explored this question from a dining perspective at my previous place of employment. I had even started a D.C. Dish Hall of Fame so tourists and transients alike could begin to understand the food that long-time Washingtonians hold in esteem. (Like most public votes, however, the contest rewarded a contender that wasn't yet ready for prime time.)
But like most of the big questions in life, this one won't be answered by a small group of talking heads gathered around a microphone. It'll require public input. So be prepared to call into Kojo with your own thoughts and opinions.
The show airs at noon today on WAMU, 88.5 FM.
