Mount Vernon Triangle residents and businesses have given up their peace and quiet, with protests surrounding this week’s Nuclear Security Summit. They’ve given up their freedom of movement, with fences criscrossing the area and traffic flowing like primordial ooze (see the WaPo’s LIVE UPDATED MAP here). They’ve even given up their anonymity, with local residents being asked to provide identification as they come in and out of their buildings.
All of which may just make D.C. Emancipation Day especially bittersweet.
