He's baaaaaaaaaaaack!

Former (but still disgraced) DC Mayor Marion Barry returned to the District's government today as member of my favorite legislative body, the DC Council:

Barry, in a wrinkled suit and gray beard, summoned some of his rhetorical skills in calling for a "new day" in Ward 8, which he said is "the stepchild of the city'' and home to some of the District's worst schools and most dangerous streets.


"I'm a fighter. When you look in the dictionary and look up the word 'courage,' you see my picture," Barry said to laughter and applause.

It's more likely that his picture is next to "dope."
