WaPo’s Mui Returns to her New Orleans Roots

FBDC LEAD 2.jpg

NEW FEATURE

Today we debut a feature that focuses purely on writing. This gives us a chance to showcase the best of the best out there amongst Washington D.C. and political writers when it comes to writing leads. The goal is for this to become a daily staple of FishbowlDC. There will be no set time to it – when we find what we think is an exceptional lead, we’ll post it. This will not be partisan in nature, although at times we may feature the lead of a column, editorial or story that leans one way or another. Please don’t be shy. Send us your leads or those of your coworkers at fishbowlDC@mediabistro.com or directly to me at fishbowlBetsy@gmail.com.

Our first featured lead is by WaPo‘s Ylan Mui, a WaPo business writer who wrote a story for the WP Magazine that ran Sunday:

I bumped into my past one steamy afternoon in June at a snowball stand just outside of New Orleans.
