Primaries Over--Need More Contests?
In case you're already going through withdrawal now that the presidential carnival has moved on to other parts of the country, I've got a couple of contests you can leap into:
--What's the best Washington movie ever made? We've discussed this from time to time over on Potomac Confidential, but here's your chance to vote on the question, choosing from this list (or adding your own entry):
1. An American President (1995)
2. All the President's Men (1976)
3. Advise & Consent (1962)
4. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939)
5. Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)
6. Born Yesterday (1950)
7. Broadcast News (1987)
8. Primary Colors (1998)
9. The Candidate (1972)
10. Talk to Me (2007)
Feel free to quibble about those selections on the comment boards. The contest, by the way, is sponsored by the Avalon Theatre, the community-owned movie house in Chevy Chase, D.C., which will screen the winning movie on Saturday, March 1, at 1 p.m. as part of a campaign to raise $2 million to rehabilitate the grand old theater and retire the mortgage on the place.
--Contest #2: We ran our own version of this one here on the blog last month, but now the District government is asking officially for your ideas on what to put on the D.C. quarter that will, somewhat belatedly, join the U.S. Mint's state coins program.
While the winners in my contest were mainly the biting and nasty suggestions you would expect from this here blog, we did have a serious winner too, so we'll see if the D.C. government can do any better. You'll have to hurry: The deadline for entries in the D.C. contest is Feb. 22.
