This year has introduced us to no shortage of interesting characters on Metro Connection, so this week we'll feature some of our favorite profiles of 2012. We'll hear from the Maryland man who's trying to save one of our region's last drive-in movie theaters. We'll spend some time with a self-described "swaggering iconoclast" of the D.C. jazz scene. We'll hit the beach with the artist who coaxes elaborate scupltures from the sand. And we'll remember Jaylee Mead, whose legendary support of D.C. theater benefited stages across our region for decades.
