Nine Lives of Marion Barry

the Nine Lives of Marion Barry for FREE on HULU
www.hulu.com


I think I am going to sit down and watch this
I hope it is an interesting and well presented documentary
there is an interesting story
hopefully some good mixed in with the scandals

sometimes I think Marion Barry was reincarnated as Vince Gray


this city...
still not sure why people were not excited about the momentum of Adrian Fenty

I am not anti-Gray
I was pro-Fenty

what is this?
is this pool at risk because the pool is looked at as being a Fenty "thing"
all these great astro turf fields are going to need maintenance
and guess what
logic would say we need more turf fields
would turf fields fall under a Fenty "thing?" or just something better for the city as a whole
progression with the times

SAVE THE WILSON 50

Gray axed Gabe Klein and Michelle Rhee
two people working hard on interests that are important to me

EDUCATION! what could be more important than EDUCATION?

then these other great things... bike share... bike lanes...

decrease in crime...

school renovations...
playground renovations
community center renovations as expressed by astroturf fields and swimming pools


we were entering the modern age
now we are back to living in the '80s!

THAT BITCH SET ME UP
www.washingtonpost.com

in the film about Hardcore Music (a subset of what is generally known as Punk Rock) interviews Minor Threat-Fugazi-TheEvens front man Ian MacKaye as saying that it was the programs of Mayor Marion Barry that fostered the independent music scene
or something to that effect
