F.U. Kevin Spacey

Last Friday the Washington Post broke the story of Netflix’s “House of Cards” production company trying to shake down Maryland Taxpayers for at least $10 million: Give us millions more dollars in tax credits, or we will “break down our stage, sets and offices and set up in another state.” The newspaper helpfully posted...

Police Sweep Broom Factory

People who were at the Scapescape afterparty at the Broom Factory Saturday night say the Baltimore Police came in hard, with “tasers clicking” and lots of attitude for the 30 or so people who had by then gathered. They arrested Andrew Gaddis (pictured), an organizer of the party and a leaseholder at the space,...

The #1 way D.C. is worse than Baltimore

Sure, the sale of the Post is the big news. But last night we discovered another “media” outlet in Washington, D.C. that has reached a heretofore unknown plane of smug stupidity that embodies what is worst about white Washington. The utterly unremarkable website thrillist.com tried to generate traffic with their listicle “10 reasons DC is OH...

The Chesapeake! Congratulations to the new kid on the block for charging 21 American dollars for a WhistlePig Manhattan, up. This struck me as a bit of a surprise, considering many of their in-house cocktails — i.e. the drinks unique to their establishment — were listed for $10, but sure enough, right there in...

Fake Seal seeks to raise “billion a year” for vets

A reporter typically gets a half dozen charity solicitations each day in the email, and most go to the trash. This one a couple weeks back caught my eye because of one phrase: “WWII Navy Seal.” Hi Edward, Earl Littman, fmr Navy Seal (Team 1 !) has a new mission. He has a plan to...

From the outhouse to the penthouse: my day at the Preakness

It would be easy for City Paper to take the position the Preakness sucks. The crowd, after all, is overwhelmingly stuffed shirts, blue bloods, and what our art director Joe MacLeod referred to as “Easter Catholics,” people who turn up to the racetrack once a year for the high holiday of Maryland racing and...

“Without Actually Doing Anything”

MoJo has an interesting vid of Mitt Romney laying it out to his base.  You’ve probably seen or heard about it. Most of the attention so far has been focused on his remarks about the “47 percent who are with , who are dependent on government.” But later in the speech Romney says...
