Design: Beginning May 12 at 7th & H Streets NW, DDOT will implement the “Barnes Dance,” an X shaped pedestrian crossing pattern that will allow people to move in any direction including diagonally.
TV: The Good Wife on CBS makes watching lawyers and courtooms fun. Hence, the team at The Internationalist decide to hand out a virtual award to the freshman hit for best tv drama of the season. The show has strong characters, clever plotlines, and an excellent score by David Buckley. We think it has an Internationalist appeal.
