Pick of the day: "A mayoral fencing match"

This story has everything -- well almost everything. It's missing sex and murder and there are no acts of heroism--or, it seems, heroes. But, hey, it's Monday, and this nicely reported piece by The Washington Post's Ann Marimow captures a tense political struggle in the District's mayoral contest that reveals how even those who run the government can get snared in its bureaucracy. If nothing else, it should make those of us who have tried to run the city's gauntlet feel a little better. Perhaps Mayor Adrian Fenty and his opponent in the Democratic primary, D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray (whose fence is at issue), should remember their Frost: "Good fences make good neighbors."
