Three Intersting Things

1. Today is a hearing on DC statehood and voting representation.  DCist is here with the handy wrap up of what DC is today and what some of us hope for it to be.  Including the handy factoid that the reason some of the Virginian parts of DC were "returned" to Virginia so slavery could be banned in DC without messing up the good slave ports in the area.  
2. This story of a woman thought to have helped over 600 women poison their husbands in the 1600s is fascinating. 
3. Did you know the antaomy of the clitoris was not included in most anatomical textbooks for years.  Want to guess what year it was added? Did you guess 2019?
