After over a year of strict COVID regulations, Washington D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser is opening up reception centers for weddings, but has decided to ban dancing in them.

“Beginning May 1st, multi-purpose facilities and venues may host events such as weddings,” the mayor’s statement read, “provided that there are may be no more than 25% capacity in any room or up to 250 persons . . . standing and dancing receptions are not allowed.”

“An alternate headline may be, ‘Now You Can Host a Wedding in Washington, D.C.’” the mayor said in defense of her decision on CNN Wednesday. “And just like our restaurant guidelines suggest is that you have to be seated to enjoy the restaurant.”

Bowser stood by the regulation even if everyone in the wedding party is vaccinated.

Sam Brinton, the Biden administration’s deputy assistant for spent fuel and waste disposition at the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy has been charged with a very bizarre crime.

Allegedly Brinton purposely stole a woman’s Vera Bradley suitcase worth $2,325 from the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport’s baggage claim.

Brinton is one of the federal government’s first gender non-binary officials who uses they/them pronouns. Court filings state that surveillance video showed Brinton grabbing the luggage and removing the owners ID tag.

Brinton then used the Vera Bradley suitcase on at least two occasions; one while traveling to Washington, DC, on Sept. 18 and the second on Oct. 9, investigators say.

Initially, Brinton denied stealing the suitcase to police officers. They later claimed it was taken by mistake, although it was still  in their possession.
