Old-line Democrats in D.C.

It seems that the fiscally liberal yet socially conservative "old-line" Democrats in D.C. aren't happy about political trends that are supposedly turning the capital into

a haven for medical marijuana, same-sex marriage, cyclists, streetcars, dog parks and more affluent, younger residents,

all of which are self-evidently very bad things. Perhaps they need a reminder that the District once tried doing things their way. Back in those good old days, the District was an international laughingstock; apart from its status as the capital, it was known for crime, drugs, corruption, high taxes, and very little else. Since the old-line Democrats so love to quote the Bible at the rest of us, they should remember the Biblical teaching that every tree is known by its fruit.
