Ten random things: November 12

Ten District Stars:

  1. Connie Chung, journalist
  2. William Hurt, actor
  3. Chita Rivera, dancer and actress
  4. Elgin Baylor, basketball player
  5. Goldie Hawn, actress
  6. Toni Morrison, author
  7. Edward Albee, playwright
  8. John Foster Dulles, U.S. Secretary of State
  9. Noor al-Hussein, Queen of Jordan
  10. Leonard Rose, cellist

So what is a District Star? Well, when I got to the library tonight, there was a children's non-fiction book about Washington, D.C. sitting on the table where I set up my laptop. Toward the back of the book, there was a section containing biographical paragraphs about notable District residents. The title of that section: District Stars. Other stars include Duke Ellington, Helen Hayes, and, most amusingly, Marion "Bitch set me up" Barry.
