We know: Montgomery County's the best place in the area to live, work, play, learn and eat. Though, sometimes, we get a yen to peek into the lives of our neighbors to the south. You know, the ones living in that tiny, little place called Washington, DC?

- DC homeless advocate honored with a potluck lunch: The late Brian Anders, a man who championed space and resources for homeless people in the District, was memorialized today with a lunch and service. (Click to learn more about his work.)
