my long stated assertion that DC is not cool is being challenged. perhaps it is I that is not cool. Perhaps I am, after all, the suburbanite that I so deride. I mean, I did grow up in a place called Burke Centre (yes, with Centre spelled like that, which is such shit). How did I grow into such a cityphile?
anyway, DCist, which can be found here, is starting to open my eyes a bit. The district is cool, people. Northern VA is decidely NOT. however, both areas continue to win awards for relative level of pretention.
