It was good to read about the housing progress in Ward 7 with the new Skyland Tower in your paper last week. But when I got to the part where there will be 263 new homes and only 53 will be affordable, I was disappointed. While I know there is no easy answer to address this housing crisis, what dent will 53 units make when thousands need affordable housing?

Mystics Take on the World

Congrats to the two Washington Mystics players that are headed to Tokyo to represent Team USA in the Olympics! Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve enjoyed watching the Olympics with all the athletes competing from around the world. I also support our local WNBA team to the fullest. Let’s go, Mystics!

  1. The Washington Informer quickly broke the news of Bill Cosby’s release and freedom from prison. I welcomed this news with joy and relief. This is not to overlook I feel that we as a country have much to do in regards to respecting the rights of all people, women particularly.
