Itâ€™s a simple exchange; but it changes everything. â€œThis is my card,â€ he said. â€œYou call me whenever you need to.â€ A saucy romp through the nationâ€™s capital is the most entertaining way yet to take the topic of starving artistry to a practical, raw level.

Two nights ago, in the wake of her fatherâ€™s fatal diagnosis, Joanie Price told her husband she was leaving him in a Connecticut PC Richards, drove without a plan to DC, and didnâ€™t tell a soul. Her husband proceeded to empty the bank accounts.
