It's always good when we get a new business whose commercial purpose I can identify.  Wingstop has opened in the shopping strip along New Hampshire.

Robin Ficker, Pride of Takoma Park

“When you have a political belief, be absolutely fearless in promoting it,” said political activist Robin Ficker, who was born in Takoma Park. “Speak your mind and speak your mind until the heavens fall and don't let anyone intimidate you." 
I still think that Ficker is as deserving of induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame as a contributor for his innovations in heckling as Dick Vitale or Phil Knight.
