IN LIGHT OF THE 9:30

club’s recent relocation to their neighborhood, I hope that the residents of Shaw will now take it upon themselves to bring their area of the city up to Glenn Dixon’s standards of tidiness (“The Best of Times, the WUST of Times,” 1/12). And should the 9:30 consider any further moves in the future, may I suggest to them a space in Cleveland Park. By locating in Ward 3, I.M.P. could spare the vast majority of their clients the nuisance of having to enter the “skanky” parts of the city—places that many Washingtonians call home.
