Panhandlers: To Give or Not to Give?

Pulling up to the 7-11 for a quick Slurpee fix, I eye Dude in the Red Shirt, sitting on a milk crate as he prepares  to pounce on me with some type of line once I get out of my car.  One hand smoking a cigarette, the other hand grasping a cup, foot tapping to the new Junkyard I’m blasting, he seems capable of gainful employment to me.  But what do I know?  Not able to judge him or his circumstances, I’m still not giving him no money. I have long been turned off by panhandlers, particularly the ones that … Continue reading Panhandlers: To Give or Not to Give?

A Little Bit of SKUNKFUNK from 32

Presenting a video and tune that somehow went under the radar, this clip showcases lyrical skills of 32 as he delivers.  Funny thing is… I have no idea who the hell the band playing the music is, and looking at the some of the scenery, I’m guessing the some of it was filmed at BayStreet.  So… why am I posting this joint?  Because regardless of who the band is, the joint Cranks like a mug and need to be pushed. CHECK OUT VIDEO CLIP BELOW: Continue reading A Little Bit of SKUNKFUNK from 32

MLK Library Now Able to Remain Open on Sundays

With no time to spare, the D.C. Public Library announced last week that the money needed to keep Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library open on Sundays had been found. As part of the 2012 Fiscal Year budget, which goes into effect tomorrow, cuts to the library system’s budget had forced the city’s flagship library to discontinue Sunday hours starting October 2. But this morning, Mayor Vince Gray announced that the $316,000 needed to keep the library open from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays had been found. The library is the only one in the District that is open … Continue reading MLK Library Now Able to Remain Open on Sundays

The initiative is being launched with support from the D.C. Chamber of Commerce, and is modeled after Atlanta’s highly successful Hire One Atlanta jobs program which achieved nearly 13,000 new hires within six months of its launch.
