You gotta love DC - Marion Barry could be dead for fifty years and DC folks will still vote him into office. They do love their Dear Leader.

Ward 8 Councilmember Marion Barry was treated and released from Greater South East Hospital this morning suffering from minor injuries to his face and a broken pipe after accidentally falling down while out "walking" earlier in Anacostia Park.
Mr. Barry received a deep gash over his bottom lip that required several stitches. You see when the he few on his face he broke his crackpipe. Word to the wise: don't walk and do crack...it mess you up. Despite the minor accident Mr. Barry suffered no serious injuries and is in good spirits because crack do that to the brotha. According to Mr. Barry, doctors in the emergency room at Greater South East Hospital said he will have a full recovery and be back at work in a day or two. The only problem occurred when Mr. Barry asked; "Did anyone see a little bag of CRACK."

"I just lost my footing while out doing my daily "walk", yeah, I "walk" daily...sometimes I "walk" several times daily so I could get a quick buzz...I mean think about buzziness...well. you know what I'm sayin" What did I just say??? said Barry. "I am in a little pain so I'll probably go for another "walk" and it will take a few days to heal but I will get through this. Well, not just me, I get some help from CRACK. I plan on being back on my feet in no time, and after another lonnnnng "walk" I'll be as good as new."
