You are here. And you have a parking ticket.
Whitman High School’s newspaper, Black & White, gives us a shout!

My yoga-toned sides ache from laughing so hard. It takes true wit to be funny without being mean spirited and you pass that test. Way, way above grade level.
Keep your comments coming! We like to hear nice things, as opposed to our usual state of merely hearing things. Our mothers will be especially pleased.

B. Baguette was born from a 200-year-old French starter. After narrowly escaping the set of Top Chef with its perfect crumb still intact, it is fulfilling its shelf-lifelong goal, loafing about and pursuing the life of the aesthete.
Emily Fielding is a longtime website editor and suspected closet exhibitionist. “The great thing about living in the Bethesda area is that when people ask me why I’m not wearing pants I tell them it’s because they’re too expensive.” After purchasing just the right sunglasses, the bag, the shoes, it makes total sense.
