Capitol Weekly Top 100: The final cut
There are black lists, grocery lists, sh..t lists and graduation lists. Then there’s Capitol Weekly’s 100 List, which is a little bit of all of them, and more.
We’re the first ones to complain about lists – Forbes immediately comes to mind – but we make a shameless exception for ours, which at least gives a partial snapshot of the Capitol’s political players.
There are lots of people who aren’t on this list, and should be, and there may be some who are here and don’t belong. But in the end, we’re pretty happy with our little lineup and we hope you are, too.
There are a couple people in the list who are there just because we like them; see if you can spot them. We don’t apologize, though: We need friends, too.
This week, we offer 1 through 50, and the difference from last year is dramatic. The Brownies, exiled from the Capitol for so many years, are back – in spades.
See you next year….
50. Garry South
