January 18th is Marion Barry Day

January 18th is an inauspicious day for the citizens of the District of Columbia.  It marks the date of the arrest of Mayor Marion S. Barry, Jr. in a drug sting for possession of crack cocaine.  This year is the twentieth anniversary since the former Mayor-For-Life spoke his most famous of utterances, who has continued to serve in DC public office despite his ongoing run-ins with the law.
