How have Washington and Baltimore quarterbacks past and present marked the highs and lows of Washington football? John Feinstein joins Kojo to discuss the highly coveted and incredibly scrutinized position.
A 1.4-acre plot of land east of downtown Takoma Park has long been eyed for development. While a neighborhood food co-op has sat on part of it for 20 years, a new plan to redevelop the space envisions restaurants, cafes, a parking garage and office space. Supporters are interested in providing the city with new amenities and broadening the tax base, but opponents wonder if this plan for more upscale businesses reflects well on a city which has been considered a diverse and inclusive haven by its residents. Kojo discusses the plan for Takoma Junction with members of the community.
