End Of The Year Tab Dump - DC

It's the end of 2012 and my folder full of tabs / bookmarks that I've been meaning to share is over flowing.  The end of a year seems like a good enough reason to get them all out there for your perusal and it doesn't hurt that it will help get me up over the 100 post threshold for 2012 either.

We're gonna do this categorically, sort of at least, some other links ended up on twitter; check the sidebar for those or @hcoppola.

So we didn't get through everything on new year's eve, I had better things to do what can I say?  Which means the dump will continue to start off 2013.

This post is the collection of DC related things I meant to share.

I was really impressed with new Ward 5 Council Member Kenyan McDuffie after his appearance on Kojo.

In October Kojo and the City Paper teamed up on some polling work.

The Local Initiatives Support Corporation has had a lot to do with DC's resurgence and they're working to make sure that affordable housing remains available in DC.

Housing Complex took a look at DC housing issues and challenges using graphs and charts. Bottom line: house prices are outpacing income by a 3 to 1 margin over the last 40 years.

There is an elephant at the zoo who plays the harmonica.

There are 54 more Bikeshare locations coming to DC.

DC now has a bigger population than both Wyoming and Vermont yet continues to have no voting representation in Congress.  Our license plates say it best - Taxation Without Representation.

We're almost there gang...
