Helping To Put Things In Context: Something You Should Know About D.C.
Everyone knows Washington, D.C. for being the nation's capital where decisions are made that affect the country itself and impacts the world at large. But between the time that politicians and special interest groups like to use the city as the reason for all that ails America, it has a more intimate side. This is the side that one could think of as the "local" aspect of the city. I think if people understood what really exists within the boundaries of this diamond shaped (minus a complete side) metropolis, their perspectives may be altered considerably. As AWashingtonWoman will continue to focus on some of the wonderful women who make up the fabric of the DMV (a term used for the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and includes: the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia), we will also strive to give you a little of the backstory, as objectively as we can. So it's been a year since this all began and without really trying, this blog has exceeded what our expectations were. So we are thinking that with a little love and a lot of integrity, we can share some real true insight which can be entertaining as well as informative. Who knows?.... Maybe it will even be ..... helpful.

Michelle Fenty Upset By Perceptions of Mayor Fenty
During a debate yesterday, wife of Mayor Adrian Fenty, Michelle, became visiably emotional when being interviewed. She said she was upset by perceptions that her husband, Mayor Fenty, was being portrayed as arrogant or aloof.
We haven't heard much from Mrs. Fenty for some time now. A WashingtonWoman wonders what made her speak out now.
She has generally conducted herself with such poise and grace. It isn't the norm to see her so upset. Perhaps the stress of the political season is a bit much.
We don't know exactly where the directions of the hearts of the citizens of the District will lead them, but we are hoping it is in a positive space.
