At Long Last, Here They Are

The designs for the District quarters, which we originally were not going to have, have been unveiled. I know what my preference would be. Which is yours?

None of them say "DC" to me. None of them are particularly iconic DC personalities, though Ellington comes the closest. At least Ellington spent the bulk of his life here and identified very closely with the city. Banneker barely lived here and his greatest achievement for the city is legendary, rather than real. Douglass wasn't a DC son either. He didn't move to the District until just before his 60s.

And they Anglicized the Latin motto, too? Blah.

There's not a lot of DC pride in those quarters.
