A.M. Buzz: New Year's, TSA, and cupcakes

By Elizabeth Flock
Washington Post Editors

Good morning and Happy New Year’s Eve. I'm Elizabeth Flock, pitching in on Lori's A.M. Buzz while Lori's away.

It will be a mild new year. For those of you plans to watch the ball drop in Times Square, it will be significantly more bearable than years past. You can expect showers on New Year’s Day, however.

Still no plan for New Year’s? If you’re really this last minute, never fear, the Going Out Guide gurus are here. Read their FAQ to ensure you get the best New Year’s in the district. I hope you’ve also made your new year’s resolutions, even if you’re already planning on breaking them.

Are you a resolutionary? We know your resolutions include hitting the gym; everybody’s do.


Many airports have considered ditching TSA. If you’re flying today and are dreading the scanners, pat-downs, and general mayhem of the security line, know that some airports are considering other options.

Some passengers are already making a stand against TSA. One man stripped at Richmond airport checkpoint in protest.

But before you get too excited, also know that air traffic controllers made a record number of mistakes in 2010, which isn’t very comforting at all.

Possible remains of baby found at D.C. General complex. If you haven’t read the story yet about a photographer who found what appears to be the remains of a young human life, it’s important you do.


Family fights to bring service dog to school.
Fairfax officials say that staff members are able to do everything a service dog can to respond to emergencies and ensure the child’s safety. The family sure doesn’t think so.


Crumbs cupcakes comes to Clarendon (TBD); Metro Gets $150m for Safety Improvements (FOX); Md. Special Education Teacher Charged With Heroin Possession (FOX). Northwest D.C. Couple Creates Gaming App Empire (NBC).

That's it for now.
We're here 24/7, so be sure to check with us for more news, headlines, and New Year’s coverage.
