But people do have other things on their mind, and you don’t even have to travel to flood-threatened Fårgo to realize that. The corners of 13th and F Street NW are close enough.
The lead headlines in the newspaper boxes indicate differing interests. Yes, health care, but also escalators and Sunday’s pro-immigration march on Washington.
- Washington Post, “House unveils $940 billion health accord”
- Washington Times, “Democrats make final reform push“
- El Tiempo Latino, “Llega el dia de la marcha” — The day of the march arrives.
- Washington Hispanic, “Immigrantes salen a las calles” — Immigrants take to the streets.
- USA TODAY, “Upsets Rattle the Brackets” — Hoya Saxa?
- Washington Examiner, “Death by iPod” — It’s dangerous to jog and bike when wearing headphones.
- The Express, “Broken Down and Fed Up” — Washington Post’s commuter tabloid highlights Metro’s infuriating escalator breakdowns.
The Spanish-language newspapers have been promoting Sunday’s immigration march on Washington for quite a while, but other D.C.-based media have paid little attention.
