“Sweet Wood”: Cinnamon – Part I

Young men should be wary of women “whose feet abide not in their home” and who invite them back to their cinnamon-scented beds. These temptresses, the Hebrew proverb says, offer an amorous evening: “Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning.” In the ancient world, cinnamon and its lower-status sister, cassia, were […]

HAS DC A “CHARDONNAY LADY” CASE SITUATION AGAIN AFTER 14 YEARS?

Long-time readers of The InTowner are likely to recall the idiotic police action back in June of 1997 when a perfectly pleasant, law-abiding Dupont East woman resident of the 1600 block of Q Street was summarily arrested by a poorly trained police officer who charged her with drinking booze in public.
