This ought to be good.

On Thursday at high noon (de-emphasis on high), Washingtonian‘s Carol Joynt, who hosts Q & A Cafe, will give Ward 8 City Council Member Marion Barry, Jr. a grilling at the Georgetown Ritz.

“At a time when so much uncertainty faces DC politics, we’ll talk to Ward 8 City Council Member Marion Barry, Jr.,” she writes in an email invitation. “Whether you love him or loathe him he is at the heart of DC politics, and he’ll play a vocal part in whatever happens next. He’s thinking about his legacy now and wants to talk about that.”
