Happy 'Fakesgiving' -- D.C.'s blogs

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. The first day of November, and it was pretty darn cold. But at least it's not raining yet. (Capital Weather Gang says that comes Wednesday night.) The chatter in the blogosphere is all about the Restore Sanity/Keep Fear Alive rally that swamped the Mall and the Metro system. But I'll go in a different direction with today's roundup, offering you a full selection of non-rally related posts. Ever heard of "Fakesgiving?" The Bitten Word explains. And what's Halloween without a good "Thriller" performance -- this courtesy of The Restonian.

Via Life in the Village – the District Department of the Environment unveiled the new Anacostia license plate this morning.

Georgetown’s Carol Joynt remembers Kennedy speechwriter and advisor Ted Sorensen and his 2008 visit to her Q&A Cafe on her blog, Swimming in Quicksand. Sorensen died Sunday in New York of complications stemming from a stroke.

Happy Fakesgiving from the Bitten Word. Fakesgiving you ask? Think of it as your culinary warm-up for the big day.

Rockville Central has this thoughtful post about the City of Rockville’s effort to “brand” itself – an effort to help boost the city’s image in an effort to distinguish itself from other communities. Brad Rourke shares his thoughts about the results and offers you a chance to share yours.

From the Restonian“Thriller” performed at the Reston Town Center on Halloween.

That's it for now. Thanks so much for reading, and remember: Tomorrow is Election Day, so if you didn't vote early, be sure to vote tomorrow. Back tomorrow with more great posts from the D.C. blogosphere.
