Lori's A. M. Buzz
Good morning! I'm subbing for Lori again on this perfect summer day. It's going to be sunny and dry, with temperatures in the 80s this afternoon afternoon easing into the 70s this evening.
Sobering news: Hundreds of people in the District were convicted of drunk driving in the past couple of years and half of them went to jail -- because of faulty breath-testing machines. City officials say the tests were improperly adjusted by police, showing blood-alcohol levels higher than they actually were.
There have been two triple-shootings in the region in just 12 hours.
A District tax investigator and the owner of a local tax-consulting firm were indicted on bribery and forgery charges in a scheme to avoid paying sales taxes, the Washington Examiner reports.
Foreclosure rates seem to be leveling off, the Associated Press reports, but the number in Maryland spiked, according to the Examiner, pushing the state into the top 10 nationally; those in Virginia rose some, as well.
Icky: One of AOL's early developers is charged in a case where teenagers allegedly were secretly videotaped in a changing room at a post-prom party.
Is all this a little too weighty for a warm summer day? Well then. Free hotdogs! Free peanuts! Cornhole! And beer! The Post's Going Out Gurus are hosting happy hour at the Bullpen, the open-air bar by the ballpark, before tonight's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. See you there!
