This just in: Tareq Salahi off the hook in tow-truck spat; the new Fastest Man in Congress

Tareq Salahi (Joel Richardson for The Washington Post)

  • A Warren County, Va., judge on Wednesday dismissed a misdemeanor charge against Tareq Salahi stemming from an August confrontation with a tow-truck driver who said Salahi stole his keys and threatened to pull a gun when the driver tried to repossess Salahi's Audi. Prosecutors agreed last fall to drop the charges if Salahi maintained "good behavior" over the next six months, according to the Warren County Report -- and, well, no one has yet filed any charges in the White House state-dinner crashing incident.

  • With perennial champ Rep. Bart Gordon sidelined by tendinitis, there was a new Fastest Man in Congress at the ACLI Capital Challenge three-miler Wednesday: Sen. John Thune, who finished in 19:19 -- just 15 seconds ahead of Rep. Aaron Schock. Nearly 600 Hill-ites, feds and journalists turned out for the annual race, this year at East Potomac Park.

    Well, I suppose "good behavior" is not synonomous with respectable and/or polite behavior.

    Gee, rather than "Real Housewives of D.C.", the Salahis might be a better subject of the television show "Operation Repo".

    Just a thought.

    Re your item on Chely Wright's coming out: Singer KD Lang "came out" nearly 20 years ago. Isn't KD Lang "mainstream"?
