Metro Weekly Party: No Jumping in Pool Until Later

Metro Weekly‘s  Next Generation Awards issue is out with profiles of its four honorees. WaPo‘s Johnathan Capehart was among a panel of eight “distinguished local leaders,” including a dermatologist, that chose the winners. Last year’s judging panel included WaPo‘s Hank Stuever.

The winners are: Gregory Cendana, Victoria Kirby, Daniel O’Neill and Sadie Ryanne Vashti.

Metro Weekly hosts a reception for them tonight in the roof-top lounge at Donovan House. Co-Publisher Sean Bugg explains the motivation behind the awards: “The idea behind the Next Generation Awards is really about both honoring and encouraging LGBT leaders under the age of 30. I think the local gay community has done a really great job honoring people who’ve devoted their lives to improving the lives of others, but we haven’t always done enough to encourage younger LGBT people to not only get involved but to stay involved.”

One rule about tonight’s party: “No one can jump into the pool until after the awards are presented — then you can cannonball all you want.”

Learn about the winners after the jump…

WaPo Scribes Dissect Sit Room Photograph

WaPo offers a unique look at the famed Situation Room photograph today by having a wide range of reporters analyze the drama in the room. For example, food critic Tom Seitsema assesses what they ate and why they ate it. Dance Critic Sarah Kaufman takes on body language while David Ignatius, espionage expert, tackles tech. But they don’t stop there. Judith Martin (a.k.a. Miss Manners) handles etiquette and what would be “unseemly” and TV Critic Hank Stuever takes on TV Situations Rooms versus the real one.

White House photog Pete Souza snapped the picture.

Let’s find out more….

Oh, baby

“Off my plane 5 minutes and a sober stranger has already called me baby. Hello, New Orleans.” — Bloomberg TV‘s Lizzy O’Leary in a Monday tweet.

So wrong (but funny)

“This may be a first: Just fixed a typo that read “public hair” when writer actually meant ‘pubic hair.’” — Washington City Paper‘s Managing Editor Mike Madden in a Monday tweet. Read the story he was referring to here. It’s by Moe Tkacik. The headline is: Author Sara Marcus: “Who Wants A Senator With Pubic Hair?”

“Trying to summon up the whatever-it-will-take to write a Conan review tonight. It’s not him, it’s me.” — WaPo‘s Hank Stuever in a Monday tweet.

Snappiest part of Bush-Lauer interview

“I resent it, it’s not true and it’s one of the most disgusting moments of my presidency.” — Former President Bush in an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer Monday night on his memoir, Decision Points. Bush was discussing the moment when singer Kanye West said he didn’t care about black people.

Lede du Jour: Sarah’s Salmony Slanket

The lede of the day goes to WaPo‘s Hank Stuever for his use of the term “slanket” in describing Sarah Palin‘s FNC ensemble last night:

“On election night, Sarah Palin served as Fox News Channel’s personification of hope – its poetic muse and telegenic Wonder Woman (in no-costume Diana Prince mode), wearing a salmony red dress that looked, on camera, like an elegant, soft Slanket clipped at the collar with a microphone.”

Did WaPo’s Shales Quit on Facebook?

After a cryptic post by Tom Shales, referencing “December 31st” and being “over-and-outta here,” appeared on Washington Post chairman Don Graham‘s Facebook wall yesterday, TBD.com suggested that WaPo‘s longtime TV critic may be quitting the Post.   Sources tell FishbowlDC that there have been rumblings that he is unhappy with Hank Stuever‘s recent promotion to WaPo‘s main critic – a transition that redefined Shales as a columnist. According to sources inside the newsroom “there is still a struggle over who reviews what.”

When reached for comment, a WaPo spokesperson told FishbowlDC, “Tom has been on contract since he took the buyout and he is still on contract.”

See TBD for the mysterious wall post.
