When Warner T. McGuinn, a black attorney, Yale Law School graduate and former Baltimore City Council member, died in 1937, a report in The Sun provided this epitaph: "No member [of the council] has been more effective or more earnest in endeavoring to promote public welfare." "Mr. McGuinn ... set an example in his recent service of nonpartisanship in consideration of measures before the Council and when he spoke upon them he showed that he had taken pains to inform himself. His record deserves commendation," the newspaper said.

As the chief operating officer for Washington's Chamber of Commerce, F. T. Burden's job is to promote and attract business to the nation's capital. Just don't ask where he's moving. The district? Nope. Gaithersburg? Wrong again. Rockville? Must be kidding. How about a 7,500-square-foot Victorian in the 1900 block of St. Paul St. purchased for $57,500, a fantasy price in Washington. Although the house needed tens of thousands of dollars of rehab work, a similar Washington property might have cost Burden hundreds of thousands of dollars.
