Washingtonian Tags my WSJ Silent Shakespeare Piece as “Defining” D.C. in 2015

Along with Donald Trump, Gov. Chris Christie,  the Washington Redskins (with a name that liberals now hate),  and reviled pro-Confederate flag protestors, Washingtonian magazine credits me with one of the “17 Moments of Local Outrage That Defined 2015.” Here’s an outtake from the Washingtonian article: July 14: Wall Street Journal vs. Wordless Shakespeare Synetic Theater wins bushels of awards […]
