Kevin 'Bacon' & D.C.'s blogophere

By Washington Post editors

Happy Friday. Cooler temperatures are predicted for this weekend, so fall may finally be here. The D.C. area blogosphere -- as busy as ever. So Good has a new invention designed to thwart refrigerator thieves. And what about this from Crispy on the Outside: a tribute to Kevin Bacon done in bacon (and yours for the right price.)

New Columbia Heights reports that a hubcap bandit may be working the neighborhood.

Beyond Bread profiles a longtime volunteer who has used her language skills to help hundreds of Bread for the City clients. Elena Alvarez, who recently retired from the World Bank, has also helped save the nonprofit thousands of dollars by providing much-needed translation support for Spanish-speaking clients.

Anacostia Yogi writes about a new film by Expedition Blue that documents Southeast's Earth Conservation Corps and their efforts to clean up the Anacostia River. Here’s a preview.

For sale: a bust of Kevin Bacon made of … yes, bacon. Crispy on the Outside has the scoop (and a picture) via USA Today.

Those who have to share space in a refrigerator know there’s nothing worse than opening the door and finding your lunch/dinner gone. So Good says the solution may be the thief-proof lunch bag. Now why didn't I think of this?

That's it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great weekend. Know of a great blog that I'm missing? Let me know. Post below or send me an e-mail at
