Now, after nearly two years on the market, the two-story red brick residence on Glen Allen Drive has been sold to a young couple. We can't think of a more fitting tribute to Mrs. McCoy, who was a long-time agent with O'Conor, Piper & Flynn.

Last month, Attorney General William Barr announced that a special counsel would conduct a probe of the House of Representatives' bank. This removed the investigation from the control of Jay Stephens, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia. Mr. Stephens is well known for his sting, indictment and conviction of D.C. Mayor Marion Barry. Some critics of that operation thought Mr. Stephens, a Republican, may have been motivated in part by political considerations in going after the Democratic mayor.
