I was recently disturbed to hear our city's beloved mayor is personally a real jerk. I spoke to a friend last night who told me of her encounter with him last week at the Foggy Bottom 7-Eleven. No one else was around except for her, Hizzoner, and the cashier. She said, "Good evening, Mr. Mayor," to which he said nothing back. She then tried a little small talk at the counter while he was getting rung up. At which point Mayor Anthony Williams turned to her and said, "I'm not here for the conversation" and left. There are some things politicians can lack, such as sincerity and honesty, but friendliness toward constituents isn't usually one of them.

AT least he wasn't buying a Big Crack Gulp.

I have had much different run ins with the Mayor. Maybe he was having a bad day. One data point doesn't do it and God knows this city could give one a case of the cranky's.

Once again, I ask of those who live in or near the People's Republic of Columbia, why does anything apparachiks like Williams say or do matter?

D.C. is a sinkhole for our tax dollars, and should not have any form of "home rule."

Give full control back to Congress. They may be a sorry lot, but they don't begin to approach the massive incompetence of the D.C. "government."

The D.C. government couldn't organize a two-car funeral, let alone run a city.
