It's hard to escape this bizarre 2016 election. Among the (many) vexing issues: the frequently-invoked term "Washington" -- often cited with vitriol, occasionally with praise, but always with reference to a famous but not-the-whole-story capital city.
For most residents of the District, that "Washington" is as foreign as it is to folks in distant states. For us, DC is home. It's fun and challenging and exciting and currently very humid. It has scads of libraries, schools, museums, and a burgeoning creative class, all of which we are delighted to support.
I am proud to call DC my hometown. (I wish I could call it my home state.) And I am delighted that my DC business, which proudly supports local artisans, is now launching a couple of our own Made-in-DC product lines: DCProper (apparel) and The Proper Kind (paper goods with positive vibes). We'll be telling you more about these in coming weeks.
But first, we're calling on our friends and readers to tell us: why do you love DC?
