'I Am the Mayor, I Am the Mayor . . . '

D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty (Ricky Carioti/The Washington Post)

Just so you don't forget who he is! ... Adrian Fenty wasn't originally expected at Eastern High School's graduation ceremonies early Wednesday, so he sent over a letter of commendation for the graduates. But then to everyone's delight, he ended up stopping by after all -- and reading his own letter. And after all the "you will make a great contribution" and "my best wishes for great success" stuff, he kept on reading through to the very end: "Adrian Fenty, mayor of the District of Columbia."

Ooops? It got some laughs, but a rep said the mayor knew what he was doing: He always reads those parts out loud, proclamation-style.
