I wrote a thing for the Washington City Paper in its How to Fix Everything issue. You can find it here. And at your local newsstand. And in newsboxes around the DC metro area. And maybe worn as a pirate hat by a bored aspirant origamist/pirate. I would encourage you to read all the fixing ideas because they are all quite good (except maybe the one about the parking lot under the National Mall [#waroncars]) and if adopted, we might truly have a better DC. Or a worse DC, like in that Simpsons episode where Lisa and Mensa take over Springfield [Larry Flynt is right!]. It's also quite an illustrious group of fixers and I'm honored to be included.
