MetroTrends week in review

Last week’s MetroTrends bloggers addressed two very timely topics—one national and the other local (to DC):

  • John Roman and Meagan Cahill offer much-needed context on fears about a crime surge in DC.
  • Erwin de Leon calls into question some of the worries expressed by the nonprofit sector about the President’s budget.
