Naked City

Every so often, a story comes along that captures the essential spirit of Washington, DC. Today there are three such stories. One is about the DC City Council. Another is about former Congressman Billy Tauzin. And the third is about local government salaries in the DC area.

I do believe that if someone went out and organized a "Recall Them All" campaign on the Internet -- urging people to vote out of office every single incumbent, at every level of government -- that that someone could raise about a billion dollars. And have a significant impact on the nation's politics.
