An 80-year-old New Mexican man plans to have his collection of Marilyn Monroe's clothing burned in Zozobra after his death. It's, like, in his will. And it seems a fitting tribute to the life of an actress whose flame burned intensely and all too briefly.

US headline OTD? DC bans pot testing of job applicants via WaPo; okay, okay, it's not exactly catchy, but I sure hope it's catching.

Homelessness is heartbreaking.

The City has hired a local NAACP leader named Harold Bailey, but the choice remains controversial. According to a quoted source, Bailey has "sold his soul."

You know what Downtown needs? If you guessed "a temporary ice skating rink," bingo! This could only turn out well, no?

Oh and did I mention that Crispin Hellion Glover is coming? Rhetorical! In fact, he's probably already here. Scope our interview with the actor/author/auteur, "Begging the Question(s): Crispin Hellion Glover talks critical thought, propaganda and taboo." Visit with Glover on Friday and Saturday night at The Guild Cinema.

And Devin D. O'Leary schools us on Hollywood holidaze in this year's Alibi Holiday Film Guide.
