Anyway, it really scared me… I can’t imagine what it does to a kid to know that someone was stabbed (and most likely killed) right there.”

Intangible Arts as an update on the record store that will not die.

I am glad a change has come to ANC 2C and I am even happier to be a part of it. I will do my best to represent my Single Member District and make sure that the voices of our citizens participate in all issues that affect our neighborhood.
