Barry Still in ICU at Howard University Hospital

Council member Marion Barry (D-Ward 8) remains in the intensive care unit at Howard University Hospital after being moved there Tuesday night, according to Natalie Williams, his spokeswoman.

Barry, who underwent a kidney transplant in February, was admitted to the hospital early Tuesday to be treated for dehydration.

Williams had said Tuesday she expected Barry to be released in a "few days." She had no update Wednesday.

Mr. Barry,

Please hurry and get well! We need someone with backbone in the council to help stand up to this Fenty/Rhee fiasco!

Keep fighting the good fight, no matter what the "others" are saying. Everyone with an ounce of sense knows exactly what this is.......................

BTW, interested in being Mayor again????

The fact that the jilted teachers are Barry fans, tells you all you need to know about their qualifications in life and as teachers.

Barry (crackhead and tax cheat for life) was the most corrupt, embarrassing mayor of any city, anywhere, in the history of the nation. The graft and crime that followed him and his entire administration has never been matched (atleast by another Mayor)

The sooner Barry is gone, the sooner DC will be less corrupt.

See you in hell.

Howard is an excellent hospital with an excellent staff. You can walk down the hallways and feel the healing power of all the love that doctors, nurses, and staff have for all the patients, and the power of prayer seems to be evidenced in every person.
