City Paper is not for tourists
In: Logan Circle
Residents Are Opposing: A residence that has housed, at various times, a stationery store, a laundromat, a law office, and a “ball cap sewing operation”
Because: It’s a zoning violation.
We Say: Worse yet, it was a “ball cap sewing operation with release.”
Residents Are Opposing: The person who stole a “Peace” flag from a porch
Because: Stealing is wrong.
We Say: Angry mob offers poetic justice: a savage beating.
In: Takoma Park
Residents Are Opposing: Two pedestrian “Walk” signs
Because: They face the wrong way.
We Say: So that’s why the ditch is full of guide dogs.
In: Cleveland Park
Residents Are Opposing: The SunTrust Bank on Connecticut Avenue NW
Because: It shut down its ATM.
We Say: Cash-poor residents now paying au pairs with gold bricks.
In: Foggy Bottom
Residents Are Opposing: George Washington University Hospital signage
Because: Oversized messages “scream at you.”
We Say: And if you scream back, then you’re the crazy one. Josh Levin
