Meet the Faregate Moron: D.C.'s blogs

By Lori Aratani
Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. Much buzz in the newsroom today because Lance Armstrong -- yes THAT Lance Armstrong is in the building. Boone from "Lost" was also here. However, I'm still hoping George Clooney will pop by for a visit. After all, his father, Nick, was a newsman. But on to other things, namely what are folks talking about today in the blogosphere? Parking in the District is definitely a hot topic and WashingTina has a great post about different Metro "types" that will make you laugh.

Keying off of D.C. Council member Jack Evans’s pledge to return “sanity” to Washington's parking system, Dave Alpert, over at Greater Greater Washington has some thoughts on how to do just that.

Tom Bridge at We Love D.C. also has some thoughts on parking reform in D.C. (and Tom, I’m totally with you on the quarter issue.

Metrocurean reports that three D.C.-area chefs will compete on ‘Top Chef All Stars’ Hmmm, if there can only be one winner, who do we root for?

An excellent post from D.C. Ladies on how to prevent traffic, parking issues from ruining your party or event. Nothing worse than 300 hot appetizers and no guests.

If you have children, friends of children, or nieces or nephews, you’re probably familiar with Flat Stanley, the paper cutout whose travel exploits have taken him around the world several times. Anacostia Diaries has some fun shots of Stanley’s recent visit to Washington. (Isn’t it amazing? Flat Stanley never ages!)

The Faregate Moron, the Pole Dancer – recognize these creatures? WashingTina describes the unique characters found at the Metro station.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading, and have a great day. I'll be back tomorrow with more intriguing posts from the D.C. area blogosphere. Feel free to send me your nominations at
