News from the Island of Misfit Boys

The lede from TPM:

Residents of the C Street Christian fellowship house will no longer benefit from a loophole that had allowed the house's owners to avoid paying property taxes.

Previously, the house -- despite being home to numerous lawmakers -- had been tax exempt, because it was classified as a church.

In other good news of religious crackpots going down, the Washington Times train wreck continues. TPM reports in one post that "contributions to employee 401(k) accounts [have] been suspended," and in another that (erstwhile?) editorial page editor Richard Miniter is suing the WaTi for discrimination because he was forced to attend one of the Moonie mass weddings. TPM's complete coverage is gathered up here.
