D. C. Russell is the pseudonym of a long time observer of politics in Prince George's County.
Senior citizen, 49+ year resident living less than a mile from the DC line. Libertarian, fiscally conservative, socially moderate, strong believer in the rule and consistent application of law, and increasingly distrustful of career politicians, big government and government secrecy. Appalled by the crime and status of education in Prince George's County and by the willingness of voters to retain in office the public officials responsible.
Note: Effective in late April 2012, D.C. Russell went into semi-retirement, cut back on blogging, and turned routine moderation of the PG-Politics mailing lists over to volunteers. For more information, see Changes to PG-Politics Blog and Mailing List.
Updated June 2015: With the demise of the Prince George's Gazette, frequent postings of links to Prince George's-related news have returned and are compiled by D.C. Russell (when in town), and helpers.
