    'MINNIE MOUSE' AND GANG ATTACK TWO IN DALE CITY
    Inside NoVA: "It's not the kind of behavior you'd expect from Minnie Mouse.

    Police are looking for three teenage girls involved in two separate incidents Tuesday – a street robbery and an attempted robbery. In both cases, the culprits wore masks – one of them a pink and black Minnie Mouse mask.

    The crimes happened within a span of five minutes and included three girls -- all black and between 13 and 15 years old, said Prince William police spokesman Jonathan Perok."

    LEONSIS 'DOUGIE' STATUS IN DOUBT
    DCist: "Oh, so now Ted Leonsis says that he won't do the Dougie if the Verizon Center sells out for a Heat, Lakers or Celtics game."

    CARDIN REQUESTS ROBOCALL INVESTIGATION
    Washington Post: "Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin (D-Md.) has asked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate anonymous robocalls placed to Maryland voters urging them to stay home on Election Day even though polls were still open.

    "Targeting voters with deceptive messages in a deliberate attempt to suppress voter participation is well outside the limits of protected free speech," Cardin said in a statement. "We cannot continue to allow such intentional actions to be tolerated.""

    COLLEGE DRINKING RITUALS CAN BRING AN UNHAPPY BIRTHDAY
    Washington Examiner: "Every semester, at least one of my George Mason University students turns 21. Most of the time, they write about the event after the fact in a journal entry. But last year a female student was so apprehensive about her imminent birthday that she asked, in writing, for my advice.

    Her worry was that her friends had the whole evening planned, and she didn’t want to ruin their pleasure. But she was afraid. They planned a “crawl” from bar to bar, and she knew she would have to drink the shots they bought for her, but she also knew she would get sick if she did. Her question was how to participate in their plans without getting sick from too much alcohol."
