Former Crackhead DC Mayor is At It Again

Recently, Marion Barry, former crackhead mayor and current crackhead city councilman of Washington, DC, was robbed at gunpoint in his house. Barry is quite an impressive figure. He went to prison for smoking crack after serving three terms as mayor, and managed to get re-elected to a fourth term while out on parole. In a debt of gratitude, he bankrupt the city before the people wised up and elected a new mayor. Not one to leave the spotlight for good, Barry was elected city councilman in I think 2004, and if he had his way, the Expos never would have moved to DC.

Speaking to the press after the robbery, Barry seemed quite stunned that such a thing could happen to him. "There is a sort of unwritten code in Washington, among the underworld and the hustlers and these other guys, that I am their friend. I was a little hurt that this betrayal did happen."

I have no comments to add to this story. I think it speaks for itself. If you want to read the news article about it, click here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/01/03/AR2006010300279.html . For a pretty good commentary on it, click here: http://www.firstthings.com/ and read Joseph Bottom's second blog item from January 7, 2006.
