November 2nd is a very important voting day for DC residents. There is an initiative on the ballot for DC residents to elect their own District Attorney. Right now the Attorney General for DC is appointed by the Mayor.
I'm just waiting for the day when DC can act like any other city and demand that it's firemen and police officers live here as well as work here. Every other major city in the country does it. And with good reason. Those tax dollars stay in the city and don't spill out to the suburbs. Bleh. Don't those people know they'd be nothing without the District?
And would the Mayor be so keen on giving his friends lucrative city contracts if he didn't appoint the Attorney General?
Those jerk face suburban Congressmen have trashed the city long enough. Let's cut their power supply. Yeah!
