Barry released from hospital
Former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry, 72, was released from the hospital Friday after successfully undergoing a kidney transplant.
The D.C. Council member was released from Howard University Hospital one week after receiving a kidney from longtime friend Kim Dickens, 47.
An upbeat Mr. Barry said he feels better than he did before the surgery.
His kidney problems are the result of diabetes and hypertension, a spokeswoman has said.
The kidney transplant came as prosecutors were seeking to have Mr. Barry jailed for failing to file his 2007 federal and local tax returns. A hearing is set for April 2.
Former NPR editor faces porn charge
A former National Public Radio editor is facing federal child pornography charges.
David Malakoff, 46, of Alexandria, was charged Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Washington for possessing child pornography. Malakoff possessed the images between April and June of last year, according to court records.
Malakoff was charged by information, which indicates a person has waived the right to have a grand jury hear the evidence and that a plea agreement has been worked out.
NPR spokeswoman Anna Christopher said Malakoff resigned in June, but said she could not comment further because the case is pending. Malakoff was a science editor and an on-air reporter, she said.
Malakoff’s attorney, Danny Onorato, said he had no comment.
