Read this: R.I.P. Edwin Newman; what's in and what's out post-primary; Clarendon rapper spoofs Metro

--Remember the good old days, when TV anchors stuck up for newsprint? In his obit for Edwin Newman, Matt Schudeull tells how the legendary NBC news broadcaster once tossed comedian George Jessel off of the "Today" show for calling the New York Times and the Washington Post commies. After showing Jessel the door, Newman offered this explanation:

"It didn't seem to me we have any obligation to allow people to come on to traduce the reputations of anyone they want," he said, "to abuse people they don't like."

Amen to that.

--The public has spoken: Fenty is history, Gray is here to stay. Style inventories what's in and what's out in the wake of the D.C. primary.

--Clarendon-based comedian/rapper Remy Munasifi roasts the Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority in his latest Youtube video, "The Metro Song." It's a nice, chuckle-heavy follow-up to to Munasifi's '09 break-out, "Arlington: The Rap."
