A typo from Doris Brazil in reply to a recent post has sparked an idea for a readers’ contest. She wrote: I’d like to say that “naked men” is what brought me to Washington BC and Itchy Ankle, but it wasn’t.
I love the idea of Washington B.C. but am too ill-informed and unimaginative to spin this particular story. If you can write a couple of hundred words–or better yet, a Twitter-length 140 characters– that brings to life the nation’s capital at any time before Christ, or Itchy Ankle before what we laughingly call the modern era, then please pen them here. Modest prizes and international acclaim for the best entries.
