Today’s man on the streeet: Thomas Jefferson

Each Thursday, the DC-focused blog SocialStudiesDC interviews a DC resident to get a slice of DC life, asking them what they are thankful for.

Today the blog took an unusual twist on the man-in-the-street interview and featured a more well-known resident,
the Washington Nationals’ own racing president Thomas Jefferson.

For the record, Tom is thankful to still be ahead of George Washington in the standings (as if Teddy doesn’t even count).

SocialStudiesDC is published by daily deal site LivingSocial, and recently featured Let Teddy Win on the DC Stereotype Map.

According to managing editor Eliot Stein, the team at LivingSocial loves the Let Teddy Win movement and blog, so presidents race followers might do well to keep an eye on this relative newcomer to the DC blogosphere.

Let Teddy Win makes the DC Stereotype Map

DC Stereotype Map - from LivingSocial's Social Studies DC blogSocialStudies, the DC-focused blog produced by daily dealmonger LivingSocial, today published the DC Stereotype Map, their own extremely blunt take on the map of DC, with Wards and neighborhoods replaced by stereotypes.

Notably, Nationals Park’s small corner of southeast DC is labeled not as the Navy Yard, but as “Let Teddy Win.”

I didn’t know we had become a stereotype, but the folks over at DCist called that one out as being particularly solid. What’s that they say about being the last to know?

Rather wisely, LivingSocial published the map without commentary, leaving the discussion to the community.
