There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
In: Dupont Circle
Residents are opposing: The Embassy Row Hilton
Because: Among other things, there’s a garbage container out back that’s “very smelly” and a loud rooftop disco.
We say: Be grateful you can’t smell the disco.
Residents are opposing: Field School on Foxhall Road NW
Because: The school is “acting kind of arrogantly.”*
We say: Arrogance on Foxhall? Mais non!
In: Mount Pleasant
Residents are opposing: “An aspiring, criminally minded Martha Stewart” type**
Because: The scofflaw swiped a garden hose and jumbo trash can.
We say: That was Martha—preparing for her job in the Big House.
Residents are opposing: The Fire Department
Because: As Tenleytown’s fire station is renovated, its fire and ambulance equipment has been moved.
We say: They’ll be back after hosing down Fort Reno rockers.
In: Capitol Hill
Residents are opposing: Republican Rep. Lee Terry of Nebraska
Because: He asked Congress to overturn a zoning decision against a proposed Boys’ Town facility.
We say: Children of the Corn VI: Attack of the Republicans
