A couple of months ago, I "rejoined" LinkedIn, the social network for business professionals. I got back in to it because the network was beginning to expand from simply helping people network for that next big job to helping them with their current jobs. A few friends and family members had also joined up at the same time that LinkedIn began adding some more news-oriented and thought-provoking features.

The nation's capital is the place those with political aspirations usually aim for as an ultimate goal. There's a reason the classic James Stewart movie is called "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington." But what if you were born in Washington, D.C., and your main aspiration was to see your plays produced on stage?
