MAYOR VINCENT C. Gray’s administration has organized an “Executive Media Skills Seminar” for the city’s agency heads and senior staff. The goal for Friday’s event is to “build effective working relationships between reporters and government agency directors.” Here’s a tip: Try not to arrest people who are covering a public meeting.

Just such a distasteful event happened at Wednesday’s meeting of the D.C. Taxicab Commission. Blogger Pete Tucker of thefightback.org and Jim Epstein of Reason TV were placed in handcuffs and charged with disorderly conduct and unlawful entry/remaining after a dispute with commission members and staff about recording and photographing the proceedings. Dena Reed, interim chairwoman of the commission, released a statement saying she had nothing to do with the arrests, that they were the decision of the U.S. Park Police, whose Anacostia headquarters were the setting for Wednesday’s meeting. Calls placed to the Park Police — whose officers also barred people, including a Post columnist, from reentering the meeting — were not returned.

WTF? So the cabs are part of the gistapo now?
I know the voices in my head aren't real, but man, sometimes they have some really good ideas.
